Forgetful 5 star

Forgot to add my 5 star recipes from last week:

I made mint brownies for the Blue and Gold banquet on Friday and they were such a hit (also, one of the scouts decided to just grab a handful of brownie instead of cutting them out — classy, those cub scouts are) that I made them again for FHE.  Just regular ol’ Betty Crocker brownies, with frosting that’s got 5 drops of green food coloring and 1/4 tsp of mint flavoring (for me, I just like a hint of mint, nothing overpowering).

Brown Rice and Black Bean Bake — everyone LOVED this!  Fairly healthy, with a nice dose of cheese. :)

I made the Fish and White Bean Tostadas last night (baked the corn tortillas instead of frying them)… and they were REALLY yummy, but also really messy.  I am thinking next time I’ll either make them as a salad or a taco… but we all really enjoyed it.  HOWEVER, they were a fair amount of work.  There are a lot of steps and it’s hard to keep track of what each phase of the recipe was doing.  I’d save this for a night when you can have pretty full attention to what’s going on while you cook.  Thankfully, Drew was home and helped save the day.  Love that guy.
