Beans, beans, the musical fruit….
You know how the song goes. Ha ha. I cooked up a big crockpot of pinto beans. I season them with cumin, chili powder, sea salt, onion, fresh cilantro, and homemade veggie broth.
Beans are your friend. They are simple to cook, tasty, very versatile, and easy on the pocketbook. We always buy dried beans, you get more for your money.
Today, the crockpot came in handy. Our 3 year old was very sick last night, think projectile emesis. Poor guy. So, this mum was exhausted after a 2 am wake up from a sick baby, and two more rounds of emesis. Needless to say, he has perked up. The crockpot has saved the day and the beans smell delicious simmering. We plan to turn some into refried beans, and eat some by the bowl full. We will also freeze some for later use. A favorite, simple, and frugal meal using beans, is the peasants meal. It is beans, rice, and salsa. You can also throw in some veggies if you have them on hand. Cheap and delicious.
Hope you are having a lovely day. Tomorrow I will post the contents of our CSA goodies we received today. We share a CSA with a friend. Yay for local produce!
peas and love….
