Michelle, you asked if a slow cooker can do refried beans since you don't have a pressure cooker...so I checked my cookbooks and found one that I modified:
Refried Beans (serves 8)
2 c. dried red OR pinto beans
6 c. water
2 garlic cloves, mince
1 lrg tomato, peel/seed/chop
1 tsp salt
3 T canola oil
(opt: shredded cheese, to taste)
1. Combo beans, water, garlic, tomato, salt, & oil in slow cooker. Cover and cook on HIGH 5 hours, stirring occasionally. When beans become soft, drain off some liquid.
2. Mash (or puree in food processor). Sprinkle with cheese, if desired.
I bought some seeds for my sprouter.
I was given an indoor composter. I don't know what to do with it when it gets full though. Do I dump it outside or leave the scraps in it until it turns to dirt
ummm-thats about it for day one of December
+= Peanut (2004), Pumpkin (2007) and Butter Bean!! (2011)
Elizabeth- Thank you so much for the recipes for the tinctures. I forgot all about them and saw them when I double-checked Nov's thread. Where do you get your herbs?
