Emergency Lenten Meal

  • open a can of refried beans and spread on a tostada shell
  • add some salsa and any veggies on hand
  • if it isn't Wednesday or Friday, go wild and add some shredded cheese and sour cream
  • slice an avocado and try to hide it from the kids
  • kids discover avocado; 'share' most of it even though they already had lunch
  • microwave tostada for about a minute; leave the kitchen to wrangle the kids
  • come back to kitchen; discover that plate was not covered and refried beans have exploded a bit.
  • clean up microwave's bean explosion while tostada cools
  •  eat it; make another if still hungry, being careful to cover the plate

  2. Mmm, yummy! Just in time for me to fix a little lunch for myself, and no kids around to steal the avocado. :)

  4. What a great quick meal, we make use of canned refried beans often during Lent. I will be sure to share this with my family, since they often make their own after school snacks
