i seem to post here less and less lately ... i do blame ravelry.
i have today off. i traded this day for another ... and have thoroughly enjoyed being home today.
i also "saved" today for some home cooking ... bean soup !
bag of mixed beans (rapid boil in 2qt chicken stock, 1qt water)
lower heat and boil for 60 to 70 minutes (with lid on).
1 chopped onion
2 minced garlic cloves
1 14.5 oz can chopped tomatoes
3 bay leaves
1 tsp chili powder
1 lb smoked sauged or ham hock
salt & pepper to taste
simmer another 45 minutes (w/o lid).
don't melt bag against burner and pot, and don't over eat yummy goodness ....
