The Kids Cook Monday - Chili Time
Trying a little something different for The Kids Cook Monday, since we usually use it for baking time. We're opting for a main dish!
I told Faith we'd make a very simple chili to start, since I had seasoning packets from Kroger (yes, this is the lazy way of making chili, and no, I really don't mind). And the lazy way of making chili also involves canned tomato sauce and kidney beans. We did read all the cans of sauce before choosing one because I wanted one with natural ingredients, not chemicals.
Faith loved making this, she got to saute the ground beef, then I showed her how to drain and rinse it well in the colander. I think she really liked using the kitchen sprayer on it.
I opened the cans for her and she added them to the beef, along with the seasonings.
Stir and simmer! Easy for my girl and we'll all be eating shortly!
Next week, it's Ben's turn to help, stay tuned!
