For dinner tonight we had leftover ribs, pinto beans and potato salad that I made on Sunday. Maly was kicking around the beans with her fork and she pushed aside a little piece of bacon…
“I don’t want to eat that.”
“That’s the best part! That’s bacon!”
“Why is there bacon in the beans?”
“Because it adds flavor and texture.”
Elise chimed in:
“Maly, do you know what “texture” is?
“What is “texture””?
“Mise en place!!!”
Totally wrong answer, but still worthy of an immediate high-five from yours truly for her making the culinary association.
