Favorite New Recipe
Black Bean Sliders

olive oil
1 onion, diced small
1 14oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 carrot finely diced or shredded
1/2 cup cornmeal                            
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup water
 Saute onions in olive oil over medium heat until tender and caramelized.  In a large bowl combine onions with the rest of the ingredients.  Form mini patties.  Heat and fry patties until slightly crisp on both sides.  Serve on slider buns with mango salsa, tomatoes, and avocado.  Yum! ~From Chef Chloe

Random Fun Thing to do...
The Hot Dog Roll - by Nate & Allie
This is a fun thing to do with your kids! After a bath or shower have your kid lay down on the edge of a towel on the bed.  Tell them to lie really still and stiff (we say “stiff as a board”).  Then slowly roll them over in the towel so they look like a hot dog.  Then take the edge of the towel and pull it really hard.  Your kid will flip out of it and fly through the air.  It is so much fun!
