What does a typical week look like meal wise if you are "living on rice and beans"?
We eat alot of beans Tacos, rice & beans, beans alone with sofrito (homemade marinade)....
We love rice and beans, I also make arroz con pollo (chicken w/rice).
This is one of our favs. here:I need to find some recipes... because I tried rice and beans (and I'm NOT a fussy eater) and I nearly BARFED!
I think I did something terribly wrong.
Any suggestions for R+B recipes would not go unnoticed.
We've never actually lived on rice and beans but we've always stretched out food budget with red beans. Our fave. southern meal is red beans (pinto beans) cooked in the crockpot on high over night and all day with some meat (like a chunk of pork roast bought on sale ofcourse, portioned up and frozen in just the right amounts for such needs), fried potatoes and onions and cornbread. Omg, makes my mouth water just to type it out.
Oh my, this is one my favorite meals. Even better if you've got a homegrown tomato to slice to go with it! I love pinto beans cooked way down where the juice is a dark brown--I'm drooling just thinking about it.
Hhmmmm the only beans I add any sugar to are baked beans (those are pork n beans, not red beans---maybe she knows a secret about cooking the, ummmm [email protected] out of them.....:shrug2: ).I ASPIRE to eat beans....but so far, the only ones I know how to make are the canned heinz tomato ones on toast Love to see your faves to give them a try! DMIL makes good homemade beans, but since I found out she puts 6 cups of sugar in the pot I stay away :S
