Home Cookin': Burrito Bowls

This week, we invited some friends we've known since before we had kids  — now a family of five —  to our house for dinner. Having others over for a meal is a nice way to shake up the routine, and something I wish I did more often, but it poses its own set of challenges.

First of all, making a meal for eight or nine people seems way more daunting than preparing one for just my family of four.

Moreover, given that I sometimes have a hard time coming up with palatable food options for my own daughter and son, making a meal other people's kids will like seems especially challenging.

My strategy was to create a base meal that was customizable depending on each person's likes and dislikes. I stumbled upon a recipe for burrito bowls that fit the bill on Shutterbean, a family-oriented food and photography blog with pretty photos and yummy-sounding recipes.
