Black Bean and Avocado Tacos with Cotija Cheese

I cooked the beans with chillies, cumin, oregano and garlic, and then garnished with fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime. The only thing that would have made this dinner better: an ice cold watermelon agua fresca.

Strawberries and Cream

One of the best things about living in the UK (in my opinion) is the amazing variety of dairy products; your average grocery store has at least four kinds of cream to choose from, and when I lived in London I loved to buy double cream to pour over the incredible strawberries that were available in the summer. The heavy cream one can buy here in the States is much thinner but makes a decent substitute when I have freshly picked berries in my kitchen.
