Thursday, September 22, 2011
This week has definitely been on the crazy side! Tony is prepping for a couple of trips he is leaving on soon and with the kids' extra curricular activities are going in full swing, there is not a whole lot of free time.

So, what's my favorite food to cook a bunch of to make easy dinners throughout the week...BEANS!

Yep, pintos are a favorite here, so I pressure cooked a huge batch of them for tasty eats. My favorite way to eat them is over a bed of lettuce loaded with tomatoes and CILANTRO! Oh and smothered in hot sauce, of course.

I also baked up a catch of gluten free mini cornbread muffins. I love these! They have a hint of vanilla thanks to NuNaturals Vanilla Stevia.

Speaking of extra activities...Max is running for student council president and this is the poster that he and Tony worked on together. His speech is tomorrow!!!

Did you ever run for anything like that? Not me. I was definitely way too shy for that!
