When I first walk out the door I also have tea olives blooming right now too.
I got my walk in this morning and finally prepped my 16 bean soup in the crock pot a little before lunch. They are from a Rainy Day food storage kit and tend to take a really long time to soften. I let them soak for 24 hours and we will see if that helps. If it is not done in time for dinner tonight..... it will work for dinner tomorrow night! I just threw in a smoked ham shank, what was left of some chicken broth in the fridge and some water, an onion, some carrots and celery, a few garlic cloves, some oregano and a few bay leaves. We will see how it turns out.
Emily has an orthodontist appt after school so she will be having some soft Kraft mac n cheese for her dinner. My fall back is to take the meat off the few chicken legs left and roll them up in some corn tortillas with some re fried beans and cheese and make enchiladas from them! Always good to have a backup plan =).
Have a great afternoon!
