Although we have had few storms this winter, the days can be cool, as is today, as well as overcast. Time for a pot of bean soup.
I buy these great one pound bags of bean soup mix at my local grocer for about $2. There are 13 kinds of beans and lentils in the bag with a small envelope of seasoning. I usually soak the beans for about 45 minutes, rinsing a few times, and then I chop up an onion and carrot to put in the pot with the beans and water. Today I had a bunch of parsley and a leek left from last week’s CSA box that I chopped up and threw in. The whole thing is bubbling away now and should be done by 1:30 when I leave for the after school program I am doing.
Terry’s car is malfunctioning so I dropped him off at his office this morning and will pick him up after Good News Club at a nearby school. Very convenient for carpooling! Then we’ll pick up this week’s CSA box, come home, and have bean soup for dinner.
What’s on your stove?
