Corn Salsa and Burlap


If you like salsa or guacamole you are going to love this!
This is a salsa that is a little more filling then most.
It is colorful and fun and if you enjoy good food this tastes great!

Fresh Corn Salsa
1 Large can of Diced Tomatoes or 4 large diced tomatoes
1 Can Black Beans (rinsed)
1 Can Corn
2 Tbsp. of Corn juice from your can of corn
2 Avocados cut and diced
2 Tbsp. diced fresh Cilantro Leaves or dried
1 Lime

Add the beans, corn, tomatoes, and avocados all in a bowl and mix together. Mix in the cilantro leaves, squeeze in the lime, and add the corn juice. Chill in the refrigerator and eat with chips! This is so good and so fast to make! If you want to add even more of a dressing to it - 

Use: 1 small packet of "Good Seasons Italian dressing" mix. Make the dressing as it says on the packet and mix in with the rest of the salsa. It is great with or without the dressing!


Burlap

Also, if you haven't heard burlap is in this holiday season!
You can go pick a half a yard up at Hobby Lobby, Joann's or any craft store for just a dollar or two and make a lot of fun things with it. And they have dark and light colors - choose whichever you like.
Here are some fun ideas to make with burlap!

* Christmas Ornaments
* Table Runner
* Stockings
* Hats for little Snowmen
* Mittens for your tree decor
* Wrap around crafts balls for your tree or just wrap around your tree in 
   general
* Decorate a Wreath
* Place inside an old picture frame and use dry erasable markers for a note  
   board
* Fun signs hung with ribbons, bows, or fun clothes pins! Just paint on your 
   letters.
