Kid Friendly Tasks: Bean Sorter

I know, I know, just pop open a can, wash the slime off and be done, right? Why make your own beans when, truth be told they taste very similar (if slightly less mushy) then the ones in the can. Well, because I’m on a South American kick, because I can, because that weird slime they are packed in never quite washes off, because it’s cheaper, because I wanted to try something new.

Kid Friendly Tasks: Adding Cheese

Last night, I was faced with my usual 10 minutes to get dinner on the table, plus some cold chicken from Shashlik over the weekend (aka Russian barbeque. I’ll post the recipe soon), tortillas, green bell peppers from the garden and a can of black beans. Oh, and a family with a strong feeling of “please not pasta again”. So taking stock of what I had, I made these tasty tacos and they came out really well surprisingly enough.
