We typically keep bulk beans stored in buckets, and most times when I think about making beans for dinner...The kids are already starving!
Guess who hasn't pre-soaked the beans?
Yes, I know you can quick cook the beans in the pressure cooker, but sometimes hauling out my BIG, tank of a cooker, just seems like more trouble than it is worth!
That being said our family loves the convenience of having canned beans ready to go for those quick meals.
So, I went blog hunting for inspiration, and came across this fantastic farm blog, that I felt was worth sharing with you...
