My laundry's washed, dried, and put away. The floors are all clean and my menu's made out.
Here's what's on the menu for tonight:
Black beans (cooking away in the crock pot right now)
Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes (see recipe below)
I made tonight's meal with an eye out for tomorrow night since I'm substitute teaching tomorrow and don't want to come home and cook a meal from scratch. So here's what's on the menu for tomorrow night:
Black Bean Soup
1 tablespoon cooking oil
1 medium bell pepper, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 cans black beans (or leftover beans)
1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes
1 can Rotel tomatoes
1 cup water
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 teaspoon cumin
1 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Heat oil in saucepan. Saute' bell pepper, onion, and garlic until tender. Add beans, tomatoes, water and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 15-20 minutes. Serve with sour cream, grated cheese and bacon bits.
I plan to put this in my crock pot in the morning so that I can just come home and warm up the left-over cornbread to round out the meal.
Gather the crumbs of happiness and they will make you a loaf of contentment.
