No time to waste, I came home from running errands, and it was 7:00 PM. So, ever so calmly I walked into my pantry to figure out what to do. I saw black beans, Bingo! I just brought home pork tenderloin, therefore, I thought I only needed to think how to combine both. I was not in the mood for chili and furthermore, it was super cold outside. Hence, soup but it better be thick, and it was. smile. Done!
