Monday – Memorial Day in the United States. My kitchen is closed today!
Tuesday – Make your own Taco Salad Night… made fresher with choices of black beans, oven roasted corn kernels, avocado, salsa, crisp Romaine in addition to the usual suspects of cheese and chips.
Wednesday – Spaghetti and home-made garlic bread. Salad from Tuesday.
Thursday – Cook out! Bratwurst, beans, and fruit salad. Root beer floats as a treat.
Friday – The Best (and Easiest) Black Bean Soup: 1 can refried black beans, 1 can diced tomatoes with juice, chicken or vegetable stock to thin to desired consistency. Heat gently. Add any or all of the following: frozen corn, cilantro, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, sour cream on top, etc. Serves 2-3 or increase amounts of black beans accordingly. Great with some corn bread on the side!
