I don’t know about you….but I am so excited it is finally SPRING! As I write this I am making a list of everything I need to buy this afternoon for my garden. I am planting tomatoes, green peppers, haberno peppers, lettuce, cucumbers, zucchini, and summer squash. And who knows…maybe I will throw some other things in as well! Check back in for organic gardening updates!!!!
In honor of Cinco de May I thought I would share my favorite refried beans recipe. To say I have an addiction to this stuff is an understatement. I currently make it at least once a week. It is really simple and quick and keeps well throughout the week. I use the beans to make wraps to take to work for lunch, to eat with my eggs in the morning, or to use as a dip. The best part is when you are starving and out of time, if you have these beans in the fridge, you always have a meal. They are filling, healthy, and delicious.
