Dried Beans and Recipe Piles

A little over two years ago, I researched how to prepare raw beans at home, as opposed to buying the canned beans with added salt.

I never got around to it.

But after visiting my brother and sister-in-law's this weekend and seeing it work for them, I finally "bit the bullet."  

According to Michael, our two most commonly eaten foods are beans and spinach.
He's not far off.


One other project that is consuming a little of my time these days is gathering all my recipes into a binder.  My sister-in-law makes anything organizational look so easy.  I'm the type that gets distracted after two minutes of getting all my recipes out on the counter.

But I did manage to get rid of some of the recipes I only keep for sentimental reasons.  You know the "jello" recipes that kind-hearted old women hand-wrote for me or the "world's best punch" recipe that is only two ingredients.   I considered the purging of those kinds of recipes a large success.

  1. Have fun organizing your recipes! Sometimes it helps me to do something like that while watching a movie or listening to a LibriVox book. Then I can keep at it for longer. :)
