One Flourishing, Frugal and Fun Family!

One mother making ends meet and surviving today's recession by writing. One family learning to live off the land, cut back on expenses, and to live a simpler and a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

More Tips on Stretching Meals ~ Dry Kidney Beans

Use leftover kidney beans (instead of canned kidney beans), from making red beans and rice, and make chili.  Today we are doing that.  I added fresh tomatoes from our garden.  Our garden is still yielding us Roma tomatoes.  Although the green peppers are smaller for this time of year, I diced several of those from the garden too. 

I started to clean out our garden for the season, and pulled about a dozen and a half good sized beets.  I'll roast those with onions and fresh rosemary from the garden too.  We still have some turnips and squash also.
