The rain is pouring down in Chicago today. However, we were nice and cozy in Taste Buddies class with a cup of hot chili, slaw, and chocolate chip cookies! What a great rainy-day menu!
I love using lots of different types of beans in chili. We used pinto beans, black beans, and kidney beans today, but you can use any beans in your pantry! Chef Marc added a splash of balsamic vinegar to our recipe to sweeten the chili, and I think it made a huge difference in flavor.
Brussells sprouts are not always at the top of my shopping list at the grocery store, but I am now a huge fan of Brussells slaw! This is such a great side to any meal, and you can let your kids go crazy with shredding veggies.
CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES:
This is one of my favorite cookie recipes. The batter is slightly dry, so use your heat from your hands to form the cookie dough balls. These cookies rise really nicely -- and they are delicious too!!
