D has been traveling a lot lately. When he travels, our night time rituals slack, and dinner is no exception. My second child loves bean dip. So, a few weeks ago, I thought, “why not make bean dip into a dinner?” Fast forward to tonight. If you had walked into our kitchen at 6:36pm, here is what you would have seen:

Chips and Dip Dinner

Bowl of Tortillas Chips
Bowl of Guacamole
Bowl of Bean Dip
Bowl of Sour Cream
Bowl of Salsa
Bowl of Fresh Strawberries

Sounds strange. But as I watched my beloved chitlens munch on small chips with loads of beans and avocados, I thought, “well, this is a well rounded meal, if ever I saw one.” 45 minutes later their tummies were full. So, another easy dinner that works for me.

    mmmmm, sounds like my kind of dinner!! And anything that the kids will eat is a bonus for me!

    Is it D being gone, or the fact that it’s summer? ‘Cause our dinner routines slack as soon as it gets hot. I’m perfectly happy to declare a string cheese and fruit salad dinner, and the girls are happy.

    And here I thought I was the only one who served chips and dip for dinner on occasion! Actually, our Sunday dinner is usually chips and dip. Or instead, if I’m feeling up to it, I’ll serve toast with fruit and cheese. It’s well-balanced, isn’t it?

    I wish my kids ate as well as yours.

    We do bean dip dinner often. Only, now that I have your recipe for bean dip, it will be more often!
