No Red Beans for Me

Kiddo #3 took his turn at the stove on Monday. At about 3 in the afternoon he asked if we could cook red beans and rice. Nope. Sorry. Too late in the day to start that. So I sent him into the pantry to dig around for something else he might like to have for dinner. I like the way he thinks! Not only did he come up with a yummy dinner, he used up the leftover grilled chicken from Friday night! Talent, pure talent.

We had Soy Ginger Noodles with Stir Fried Veggies and Grilled Chicken Breast, plus Egg Rolls.

Looks good, right? It was. Mr. 10 year-old did a beautiful job, handled everything like a pro, and could not have impressed me more. He made me promise that next week we’d tackle the red beans and rice, though. I don’t think it’ll be a problem!

Until next time,
