Our Children Are Watching

"Our kids are going to ask us, ‘When you had the chance to do something in 2018 when they were talking about walls and Muslim bans and the press is the enemy of the people, what did you guys do?’ And we’re going to tell them that we and the 28 million of Texas helped this country get back on track and in the right direction." -Beto O'Rourke
It feels so, so good to have concrete actions within my control to help undo the madness Trump has caused to descend upon our country. The Beto campaign makes it really easy to volunteer. This past Friday we hosted a debate watch party at our house. It was invigorating to open our home to [mostly] strangers so that we could gather and cheer on Beto together. (In the photo above, the boys were taping invitations to the doors of neighbors who had Beto signs in their yards).

I made this Mexican beans and rice recipe in the Instant Pot and paired it with queso and tortillas from a local restaurant. I then added additional optional sides like chopped tomatoes, cilantro, limes, shredded cheese, sour cream and guacamole. It was easy and relatively inexpensive for a big group!
