I started the day soaking carrots from my garden to make a puréed carrots soup.

      • Oh gosh that sounds good (I’m really hungry right now, so even carrots sound palatable). When I cook carrots I put a bit of ginger on them–not over much–it perks them up. I do love curry…and I’d probably eat most anything that had sour cream in it. And I, too, add a bit of sugar to some soups–and my spaghetti sauce. I have a feeling I’ll surrender to the temptation to order a pizza shortly 🙂

      • Not sure….it was good the first night, but when I reheated them the next, not so good. I usually make my own refried beans and do bean and cheese burritos–I like those better, they never fail and are healthy.

      • Oh it’s too easy, a delish staple–you can have them with anything, in my opinion. I just quick soak beans–pinto usually (but you can use black, red, mix, whatever you like or have on hand)–then I cook them with a generous amount of bacon fat I collect and keep in the fridge. You don’t want to put too much water in the pot for the cooking, a moderate amount (once they start to boil, turn them down to cook kinda slow) and you just keep an eye on them. When they’re pretty soft, I use a pastry blender to moosh up most of them, leaving a few whole. I add garlic powder, maybe a little salt or seasoning salt (Cajun or Creole blend), and depending on what dish I’m making I might add some chili powder. Very versatile–I make them into burritos often, they’re a more or less healthy “comfort food”.

      • The bacon drippings are what give the beans such wonderful flavor! And it’s so easy to just add them to a plastic container (used sour cream ones work well) each time you cook bacon, and keep it in the back of the fridge where it probably never goes stale 🙂 I don’t cook bacon frequently, but I’ve yet to run out of the drippings when I need it. I’ll be eager to hear how your refried beans turn out.
