You can't plan everything. If only. *sigh*
I didn't get to make the potatoes I planned to make on Tuesday night for Wednesday's dinner, so we had to punt last night.
The choices: reheat some frozen meals from the ghost-of-meals past or dig through the pantry. The kids chose the pantry.
Here is what we created. *S* picked the ingredients.
Trader Joe's low-carb whole wheat tortillas (these things are so pliable, the best I've found so far)
Cheddar Cheese, shredded
Corn & black bean salsa
1/4 Avocado (TJs has a bag of 4 for 3 bucks)
Can o' black beans, rinsed (Yes, these did come from a can. I recently bought a pressure cooker to make my own.)
*googling how to make and can beans*
Maybe some day we'll can. Yeah, some day. Ya gotta walk before ya run, right?
Anywhoo...I put the beans in the micro with some water, salt, pepper, a little cumin, rice and cooked them up Tico style.
The nuked the tortillas & cheese for 20 seconds and put the concoction on the tortilla for the kids. The review? *S* says: Very tasty.
He ate the rest of his sister's avocado.
