I like to cook several things at once, when I can. It just makes things so much easier for me later on. Yesterday I made stuffed green chilies, salsa, refried beans, and jasmine rice.
I also started to different kinds of beans soaking to make two different kinds of bean soup today – black bean and split pea. The soups will cook all day in crockpots. I will freeze one and we’ll eat the other. For making soups and things I like to buy bacon ends and pieces. It’s much cheaper than regular strips and works just as well.
The soups can be served with just about anything. One night we’ll have soup with baked sweet potatoes. I also have some cheesy garlic cornbread muffins in the freezer that I made last week.
