Did anyone else do a play of the “Stone Soup” story in elementary school? That was the highlight of kindergarten for me.
Anyway, a cold and snowy week means a week of SOUP! I am experimenting with cooking dried beans instead of using canned ones since its cheaper and healthier.
I cooked 2 cups each of chickpeas, pinto beans, and black beans. Since they double in size when they soak, I ended up with 4 cups of each, so half went into the freezer for later. Cooking smart and being prepared!
Next I made 2 batches of soup. A lentil soup for Tuesday’s dinner and a Tuscan bean soup for tonight. Definitely a good day for soup since it SNOWED here this morning! And now I also have plenty of leftovers so the husband has food while I am gone part of this week.
We are ready for a chilly week! 🙂
