"That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:4-5

Frugal Meal Friday: Crockpot Beans & Rice

Yes, yes....ANOTHER rice and bean meal!  But this one is my newest discovery, and it's really yummy, simple, fast, healthy, and frugal.  You can find the recipe here.

The only problem I had was that the amount of cooking time she listed was NOT long enough for me.  The recipe says to cook it on high for 2-3 hours, and after 3 hours it was still full of liquid and the rice was hard.  I ended up putting it in a skillet on the stove and simmering about another hour.  I think next time I'll put it in the crockpot earlier and watch it...I'm thinking 5-6 hours will be more like it!

Enjoy, and have a GREAT weekend!
