Chili Black Bean Dip and My Amazing Weekend…

Hi everyone and please click on the title of this post to read more. Well, I don’t know about you, but I am coming off of a ca-razy weekend! It started off on Saturday with a Take Back the Kitchen Workshop with parents of Montclair Kimberly Academy, a private school in my town, where we discussed shopping, stocking and creating family menus without stress, a return home to watch all my kids while my sick husband slept, then an easing into the debut of Grandparents Who Rock downtown at the a local club(a hugely successful fundraiser with a great vibe).

My Sunday started with tons of cooking for a glamorized bakesale at the Little Kids Rock fundraiser at my friend Maggie’s house that she and my friend Abby organized with Abby’s org. Montclair Kids in Action. There we had the other end of the age spectrum, kids performing , and we had inspiring music performances as well as a soup sale, dinner sale and bakesale which yielded quite a hefty sum for our Parents Who Rock cause,

I just got home and I am TIRED!

As I sit back and think about all the activity of the last two days, I am quite pleased with the human race in my town; Everyone, young as well as not-so-young, got together in their unique ways, worked hard, and did something positive for themselves, their families and their town. It is nice to be able to have fun and do something meaningful at the same time and it is all the more meaningful if we are a little nervous in the process but get through it.

Thank you to all of you who helped out with ALL the above and enjoy the dip recipe that was served at some of the above events-you deserve it!
