Overheard From the Kitchen

Saturday night I was in the kitchen making dinner when Matthew called from the family room, "Mom, what's for dinner?"
"Bean burritos," I replied.
Then I smiled in anticipation of the squeal I knew would be coming.
Matthew loves bean burritos and always has an enthusiastic response when I'm making them.
And, sure enough, he let out a happy howl-of-sorts. To which his friend must have given him a strange look because Matthew went on to say, "Besides taco dishes, bean burritos are the most amazing thing she makes."
At which point, I think the smile on my face grew two inches on each side.
I'm not sure why it is, but I always get happy when my kids like what I'm making for dinner.
And when they brag about it to their friends?
Bonus!

Our dinner guest Saturday night asked me to share the bean burrito recipe with his mom. *grin*
And I thought I would take it one step further and share it with all of you. Just follow this link. (BTW, I add a cup of cubed cooked chicken to the recipe. We love it that way!)

You're welcome. *wink*

I agree...it is always gratifying when the folks you feed are enthusiastic about the food you prepare.

I need your recipes for the taco pizza, taco lasagna things that you made that Nick liked so much. Pretty please!

Leah - Kinda makes the time in the kitchen feel like you were earning a reward, doesn't it? :)

Kaira - I'll email them to you!

Lately, my boy has been so picky with dinner. It is so annoying when I spend time cooking a nice meal and he complains because he doesn't want to eat it. I really like when it isn't a battle to get him to eat. I am going to have to try these burritos you make, they sound yummy.***chera
