well this isn't really a recipe but when wic only offered dried beans i used the beans in a sensory table for my kids.  i put all different kinds of beans in a large but shallow plastic container and gave them measuring cups, measuring spoons and containers to play with it.  i also included an old muffin tin so they could sort the beans by type or color or size,  they always asked to play with it.  you could also use rice and color it with food coloring if you like.  pop the top back on and put it away when they are done.

I love when I use the bread and beans checks. I get whole wheat tortillas, brown rice and black beans. I get some tomatoes onions and peppers from a produce check, sometimes some avocado if it is in season. Add some cheese and chicken breast (stocked up at $1.99lb) and you have a cheap, yummy taco or burrito dinner.

You can do anything with salmon that you would do with tuna.  Salmon salad, salmon-noodle casserole, whatever.  I think it always tastes better, anyway.  Actually, canned chick peas also make a nice substitute for the tuna in tuna salad and tuna casserole.  But that wasn't what you asked!

Thank you to whomever posted about salmon quesadillas! Kids loved them tonight! Then we did desert pizzas with thin bread/buns, pudding, choc hips and marshmallows under the broil setting. BIG hit, too. All round foods tonight, lol.
