Refried Beans for Supper!

I'm trying to tell the dogs it's not canned dog food.
I'm trying to tell myself the same thing.
I used to eat it with an obscene amount of Colby cheese mixed it.
Then I'd shred some on top.
Maybe put a couple of spoonfuls of sour cream on that.
And drizzle salsa over it.
Years ago I worked part-time at a Mexican restaurant.
Their beans were the BEST.
One night I saw one of the cooks preparing a big batch.
She was ladling in Lard.
I can't believe the stuff I used to eat without thinking about it.
and now...

I'm heating up Fat Free Refried Beans in the microwave
and just drizzling salsa on it.
It might not be as tasty but I couldn't go back to the other.
I couldn't enjoy it now, knowing what I do.

Thank God we don't know what we're eating while eating at restaurants :-) :-) :-) But it is all that fat that makes it taste so delicious, unfortunately. Fat brings out all the flavors like nothing else.

Have a great day!
