There is something so incredibly satisfying about taking a few ingredients, mixing them together and creating something delicious (especially when all the ingredients are already in your kitchen). It’s art. This was the thought that passed through my head as I stirred together the black bean and corn Mexican Explosion I had just so masterfully made into a meal. Then I proceeded to pour (dump would also be appropriate) the fully-opened pepper all over it. Lovely. One might swear, but all I had in me was a pout. Luckily I had made a lot. Crisis was averted with a little brush off and a stir. It tastes pretty good… if you like pepper. I wonder if Van Gogh ever accidentally spilled the red?
