Day 268 - Dinner Everyone Liked

I'm trying to get my family to eat more beans and less meat. Typically, a bean dish is sneered at. Negotiations begin and it's a battle to get my kids to eat. Even my husband (who is in health care) will turn his nose up. But tonight? Everyone loved my bean and rice dish! OK. Loved might be too strong a word but they definitely liked it. No negotiating how much to eat before they could leave the table. No "I'm not hungry" and making other plans (my teenager and husband). Everyone ate it. And everyone liked it. Success! And joy!
