Down here in South Alabama, I am always looking for meals that don't make my kitchen hot! It is hot enough without stove and oven running for a few hours. LOL!
I have a pretty easy menu this week, too since I have 3 giveaways going at my blog and tons of housework to catch up on. Who has time to cook?
Kim: I'm glad the breakfasts are helping you all. For a while our children wanted oatmeal every day. They got over that, though. They still like it, but if we have it too often in a week, they aren't thrilled. It's nice to see a note from you here. I've been missing "home."
I soaked the beans for about four hours, drained, put in the pot (crock for about six hours on low would be fine), cooked for about an hour, then snipped up some bacon and cooked it over medium heat, chopped up some onion and celery and sauteed them in with the bacon, then put all of it in the pot with about two cups of tomato puree (a normal can) and let it cook for another 30-45 minutes. Then tasted for salt and seasoned it.
We used it for quesadillas the next day at lunch, corn tortillas, cheese, a little dollop of the beans.
