Quick note: This week's special is a delicious Black Bean Tostada. Not just any black bean, but black beans cooked from scratch!! I said this to my daughter and she said, "You grew them?" Which made me feel a little less accomplished. "No, my dear. I soaked them over night and cooked them for one thousand years (seemed like it, anyway)...and made a sofrito to add to them, which was cooked for one hundred years..." This special is vegan and gluten free. We made a delicious chimichurri sauce to go with it and it is topped with perfect avocados and cute cherry tomatoes. Best part? It's only $4.50.

Oh, and we improved our Tower Grove (chicken salad). It's more tender and more perfect my opinion. Look forward to seeing you soon.

grace & peace,

reine...and I promise, when I get it together, i'll post photos!

Sounds delicious. I can't wait to come in and try your cupcakes.

Use a pressure cooker and you'll cook black beans in 15 minutes. Now that should impress your daughter!

Yum!! My hubby is Argentine and he makes a great chimmi. I'll probably be stopping in tomorrow or Saturday! :)
