A Fun and Fork-less Meal....

For the past couple of months or so, I've been trying to cook beans at least once a week and cook up a sizable quantity of them so I would have plenty to freeze for quick meals. This- would be one of those!

I made 'saucy beans' with the black beans. Adding onions, tomatoes, garlic, and seasonings such as cumin, etc.

I made brown rice that morning with some leftover bone broth and whipped up some flat bread and buttered asparagus for an almost fork-less meal.

I told them how in some cultures the flat-bread serves as a scoop and the kids got a kick out of shoveling it up!

Fun food- frugal food- and food that doesn't take a lot of hands on time to prepare!
(Not to mention- it was all 'real' food!;)

What a great idea! I hadn't thought of fork-less meals before.

My 5 year old is always wanting to eat with her fingers. I'm sure she'd LOVE permission to do so.

Thanks for the great idea for a fun meal. :)

I have a couple that would go 'forkless' all the time- seems they like to learn by TOUCHING things- and they loved PERMMISSION to sccop up their food without a fork! ..I need to do this again soon!
