Odin has been well since we brought him home. Thanks for your concern.
So we were baking the other day and GK wanted to know if she could make dinner. I said sure what would you like to fix? She said she would like some pinto beans and tortillas. She brought tears to my eyes. REally??????, you want to fix NM food. Sure she said, then I can have burritos later on.
So, without further ado, she goes to the pantry pulls out the bean canister and begins to sort, wash and put the beans with a frozen ham bone in the pot to boil, let stand for an hour and then put the top on the pressure cooker and fire it up for 20 minutes. I guess this means she has been watching. She wouldn't let me help her.
Then on to the tortillas. We saw a recipe online that was for tortillas in a bag. I had it printed out because it looked interesting. Not traditional but interesting. GK asked if she could do that one because it looked easier than the way I usually do it. Sure says I and she was off in a flash to measure all the dry ingredients with the lard. She followed the directions to the letter and we had some hot, good flavor tortillas for dinner. But I am getting ahead of myself.
She then wanted to make a quick dessert. I didn't have any ideas and she asked if she could make up a recipe. Ummmmm okay. And this is what she came up with: poopy doos also known in 10 year old circles as Snowman poo.
The scary thing is, it was pretty good....so long as I didn't think about the name. Mini marshmallows, milk chocolate chips, drizzled with chocolate almond bark and topped with big chunk clear sprinkles for frost on the poo.
Dinner was wonderful and now she wants to make sloppy joes tonight, I asked for left over cookies for dessert.....no use pushing the creative process too far eh?
