…and beans.

You know when you have 1/4 cup leftover of this, 1/3 cup or that…not enough to make a recipe out of, but too much to throw away?

I put them all in a big mixing bowl (with some toys) and set it and Adrienne on the front porch one morning last week…






The girl was engrossed.

That’s the only word I can think of to describe her reaction to this bowl. She played – uninterrupted – for a solid thirty minutes. I tried to play with her and ask her questions a couple of times and she wouldn’t even GLANCE at me. She was sifting, stirring, pinching, burying, and throwing things all over the place.


If you need us, we’ll be on the porch with a bowl of uncooked grains…and beans.

Pin It!
