By Kim Wilson / May 2, 2012 / 15 Comments

You might assume if it is our most common meal that everyone would be sick of it – but that’s just not the case.  Beans and rice is a staple meal in our home, and yet our four year-old still requested it for his birthday meal (with the additional request of “abocabo”- translation: avocado).
