The Mr. is The Official Potato Salad Maker in our home. Since he is still inhabiting post-surgery invalid status, I made a standard sized batch with 10 lbs of potatoes. The troops rebelled and the youngest summed up their opinion when he asked to be excused with his potato salad uneaten. When asked why he didn’t eat it, he said “I tried, but when I tasted a tiny bit, my tummy said ‘oh no!! This tastes like it’s been poisoned!’ ”
The Mr’s position remains unchallenged 😜 #tribe #blog http://ift.tt/2bruhnF

Our Go-To Lunch

Standard

When we want something quick, and nutritious, that’s more than a sandwich, here’s what we do:

 

One can corn
One can diced tomatoes
One can black beans
Drain the corn and beans, dump them in a bowl and dump in the tomatoes with the liquid. Snip in some fresh cilantro, or add a teaspoon or so of dried cilantro, then sprinkle some fajita seasoning over it. Stir and microwave for three minutes, or warm-up in a sauce pan on your stovetop.
Serve as is, as a dip for tortilla chips, or add things like shredded cheese salsa and sour cream on top of  lettuce for a fuller meal.
This is yummy, and filling, and easy to make even for my young children. Then they feel so proud and helpful, as they provided lunch for the family!
