This week has been such a repeat of last week it is almost scary!! :)
Last week: Luvy went to Tennessee on Wednesday and came back on Thursday to meet our new niece, Laura.
This week: Luvy and I both went to TN on Wednesday and came back on Thursday for Uncle Frank’s funeral.
Last week: Doctor appointment, picnic lunch at the seminary, Whole Foods, and the grocery store with Luvy on Friday.
This week: Doctor appointment, picnic lunch at the seminary, Whole Foods, and the grocery today!!
How odd! We need some diversity in our schedule! :)
After all of our running today, we came home to a Luvy made meal! Luvy is famous for his crockpot skills in our house. Nothing was better today than soup beans, cornbread, and a simple salad!
I love mushrooms. They were the star of our salad tonight.
Luvy’s Soup Beans
- 1 bag of mixed beans usually pinto and great northern white beans (or just pinto beans in our case)
- 1 onion chopped (I used 1 leek)
- garlic powder, salt, pepper to taste
- 1 tsp of Better than Bouillon is also great!
Soak beans over night.
The next morning, drain beans and chop onion or leek. Add all ingredients in a crockpot and cover with water. You want about 2-3 inches of water over the beans.
Stir after 2 hours if possible and add more water if necessary.
I wasn’t crazy about our corn bread tonight, so when I master that recipe I’ll post it for ya!
Luvy is about home with a movie!! Comfort food for dinner and now a comfy cozy night on the couch!
It feels good to be home and to get back to “normal” before Christmas is here.
What is your favorite comfort food this time of year?
