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.
