This past Monday my computer kept on turning off without my permission, so I finally gave up trying to get anything done on my computer and decided to set my mind to other things instead.
I found myself being quite the little house wife or at least that is what I would like to think.
I am working on finding ways to save money and one of those ways is buying dry beans and cooking them myself, rather then buying canned beans. So Monday I did my own beans, soaking them on a low heat all day. They turned out delicious and it was super rewarding and much easier than I thought it would be.
A friend had given us some really delicious apple pear cinnamon jam and after trying a little bit of it (which, by the way, was delicious), I knew exactly what I needed to make. English Scones. English Scones were the perfect compliment to this delicious homemade jam. I made a pot of tea and we enjoyed the tea, jam and scones for lunch along with pita pizzas.
When the beans had finished cooking, I made a small pot of vegetable soup and added some of my white kidney beans to it.
Sometimes I am intimidated to try something new, like cooking my own beans, but it is always so rewarding to have down it myself. And I have a feeling we can save a good amount of money this way, as well.
Happy new Years! What are your thoughts and reflections from 2019? Or what are your new years resolutions? Do you have a bucket list for this new year?
