Frozen Bean & Cheese Burritos. this blog suggest one can of beans for 10 tortillas. that is ridiculously skimpy. We used 3 cans (15 oz) for 10 (8 inch) tortillas. (actually 9, since they ripped me off by one, in the package). 1 1/2 cups grated cheese and about 1/2 cup ranchera salsa. quick freeze on cookie sheet, then dump them into zip-loc. microwave for 2 minutes. about 45 cents each

Leftover Makeover: Chili Nachos. I had leftover chili but not really enough to try and make another meal, so I thought I would try this.it is pretty similar to our "frito pie", which is always a hit. if chili is more on the soupy side, use a slotted spoon to scoop it onto the chips.

melt plastic beads  400 for 20 mins for bowls drape over bowl put in oven til it drops down forming bowl. Kids had fun watching the beads change into a bowl. We had a ton of plastic beads in all different colors to use up. This was a great use for them. We used a few white iridescent  beads that really didn't melt and ended up browning and looking like  old Cheerios. It ruined the look of the bowl. Clear beads work better than opaque.
