The Indian dish was not well received last night. Too spicy. Too hot. Too many...chick peas.
A gargantuan pot of pintos simmered on the stove for most of the day. All of the children were delighted, because they are some pinto-eating folks. I threw together some kind of muffins for the big guy who despises pintos (I think they are beneath him). Alas, I had no cornmeal in the cupboard. How does that happen? It's been sitting in the nether reaches of the upper cupboard for three years. I had to make up a concoction and thought baking it in a muffin pan would make it more appealing. Viola, corn things shaped like a muffin.
I guess it worked. No one suspects a thing. Just wait until tomorrow, when the leftover pintos appear again as refried beans.
Dinner's total tonight: $2 bag 'o beans and some change for some odds and ends to make 'muffins'
