Kenzie's Award Winning Recipe #2
Some time ago, I mentioned that Ms. Kenzie loves to help in the kitchen. As a means of preserving my sanity - sometimes I give her a concoction of spare ingredients and let her go to town on her own recipe.
We had another winner. This one earns the Most disgusting award!
3 cups raw beans
1 cup white rice
1 shaker of salt
add holiday colored sugar to taste (approximately 32 tablespoons)
1/2 box of Parmesan Bread crumbs
12 shakes of Soy Sauce
3/4 cup Raspberry Vinaigrette
Bake at 0 degrees for 32 minutes.
This was Kenzie's face upon her taste test:
Clearly, Kenzie gets her cooking skills from her Mama! Many of my own recipes earn similar looks from those enjoying my meals...
I also want to make note that on this day, a miracle happened. Kenzie has NEVER fallen asleep in the middle of play, watching TV, etc. She strictly sleeps in bed at regimented times and most of the time won't fall asleep in the car or a stroller no matter how convinced we are that she might. We've been perplexed by this fact since early toddlerhood. But, today - It happened. She took a glorious 1.5 hour mid-morning nap on our couch on pure accident. I guess she needed it since she's been waking us up at the crack o' dawn! And, she still took her usual nap at 2:00 in the afternoon!
