I got most of the beans that came in the co-op order, canned. I had twenty pints in all. That should last us a good while. I love kidney beans so that was what most of them were. I also had five pints of baby limas, two of black beans and two of Adzuki beans. I don't know why I love to can beans, but it is very satisfying to me! I guess I feel like I've 'done something' when it's completed!
The weather was so nice today, 62 was the predicted high, so I got my shovel and went to work! I turned under three beds before I came inside! I thought I could do more, but that is a pretty good workout! Especially after I'd already worked out upstairs! I still want to make some "Energy Bars" since the girls are coming tomorrow. They only have three ingredients: dates, nuts, and dried fruit and you process it in the food processor. I think this will be a healthy snack for me and the girls. Hope ya'll have had a good week! Looks like our temps are going to be a lot warmer next week! Spring is definitely here! Have a nice weekend! Blessings from Bama!
