Mediterranean Bean Salad

The other night, my mom refused to cook. Hence, I cooked.
Also hence, lots of messiness on this cutting board. Please excuse.

I gave my dad a fifteen minute get-out-of-jail-free card that allowed him to go to Plan B, aka Wendy’s, Subway… etc. before dinner so he wouldn’t be waiting for a steak or something manly.

He decided to eat my girly, vegetarian meal.

And guess what.

He liked it.
