Tonight I'm making the most delicious non-recipe for dinner. It's Black Bean and Salsa Soup and the title almost has all the ingredients in it. It's found here on this site, but below is my slight twist on the original:

2 15-oz. cans black beans, drained
1 cup salsa (I use Wegman's brand Santa Fe style medium salsa)
1 1/2 cups broth (I've used chicken and I've used vegetable with equal success)
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon minced garlic

Dump everything in your blender or food processor and puree. Put in saucepan and heat over medium-low until warmed up. Top with sour cream, guac, grated cheese, or anything else that warms your heart.
It's nuts--there's no added fat (just a tad already in the salsa) and because the salsa has cooked onions in it there's a complexity built right in. Yum. Just the ticket on this rainy-ass day with some boxed pierogies and a salad. Fancy!

Thanks, that looks really good! We're having meatloaf, my idea of a true, gourmet, slightly exotic meal, and perfect on a yucky day.

That sounds really good - I'm gonna try it! Thanks!

And - I saw that you listen to Glenn Beck, isn't he hilarious? I love him!

I love him too. And I think anyone who hates him hasn't really listened to him. And while he is definitely a conservative, I don't like to categorize myself. But if I had to, I would say that I am a conservatively liberal libertarian who loves anything that makes me laugh.
