Balsamic Black Bean Salsa

I love Balsamic Vinegar. Pour it over tomatoes, mozzerella and basil for a simple salad, or make it into a sauce and pour over some noodles for this delicious dinner.....the possibilities are endless. The first time I made this salsa, I sat on the couch during naptime and ate almost the whole bowl, seriously! It is also very good on these tostados. I'm making this for a meeting at my son's preschool tonight. I'm excited to dig into it, honestly. Balsamic Black Bean Salsa

Four Packet Roast

I've made this roast a couple times, and have declared that this will be my roast recipe from now on. I like my roasts falling apart, so I like to cook it all day, but when cooked according to the recipe, it is still good. I had a couple of red potatoes and a sweet potato, so I cooked them up together for mashed potatoes. I made a simple gravy from the juice in the crockpot. I mixed some cornstarch and cold water together, then added it to the hot juice, and boiled it until it thickened. This makes for a wonderful Sunday Dinner, just add salad and some rolls.
