Lazy Saturday

So my sister-in-law came over to visit, and we had a picnic in the park then played Ticket to Ride and drank long drinks.

  • Having a picnic in the park is nice.
  • Calling it "my famous bean salad" does not make me famous, even if it's good.
  • I'm not as good at the game as I thought (came 4th out of 5... boo)
  • Salmiakki & Lemon long drink is apparently foul, even worse than chilli vodka.
  • The buses are still running at 2am.
Now you know.

Elisa's Famous Bean Salad

6 sticks of celery, diced
1 can of kidney beans plus 1 can of chick peas, drained and rinsed
(or you can just use two cans of "bean mix")
1 spring onion, finely chopped (or green onion, or ½ red onion)
1 can of corn kernels, drained
1 punnet chopped cherry tomatoes
1 diced orange or red capsicum (some people call these bell peppers)

freshly-ground black pepper
sprinkle of salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
juice of 1 lime (or more, to taste)
optional: finely chopped coriander
