Best-Ever Black Bean Soup

Best-Ever-Black-Bean-Soup

I found this recipe in a recent issue of ALL YOU magazine and it looked easy, frugal, and delicious. Exactly my kind of recipe. :)

Honestly, I was not expecting this recipe to be as delicious as it turned out to be. I thought it would be yummy, but I didn’t expect it be one of those major winner recipes.

Jesse was out with Kaitlynn at her ice skating practice last night and when he walked in the door, his first remark was, “That smells so good.” And it did.

But it tasted even better than it smelled! In fact, I wanted to eat it straight from the soup pot. :)

BLACK BEAN SOUP

Jesse kept commenting as he was eating it last night, “This is such a great recipe.” I totally agreed.

What surprised me most of all was that our kids loved it, too. They even asked if they could please eat the leftovers today.

It’s a simple recipe and it’s packed with good-for-you ingredients. If you wanted to kick it up a notch, you could add some hot sauce or salsa to it.

I also think it’d be great served with some crushed tortilla chips, cheese, sour cream, and sliced avocado. If you have a family who isn’t really into meatless meals, you could add some cooked chopped chicken.

Delicious Left-Overs Quiche

Guest post from Laura of Life as a Loewen

Any frugal-minded mama will tell you: it’s all about using what you have on-hand.

Finding creative ways to use what’s already in your fridge and pantry will save you a ton of money {and time}!

This quiche recipe combines two of my favorite things: pinching pennies and amazing-tasting food. It’s thick and hearty, and can be served for breakfast, brunch or dinner.

For breakfast or brunch, try bacon and Swiss cheese served with fresh, seasonal fruit.

For dinner, try ground lamb or beef with feta served with a salad and fresh bread.

The ideas are truly endless, just include what your family loves and what’s in the fridge!

Below is what we used the other day, and my entire family {husband and kids aged 5, 3, and 1} gobbled it up.

The beauty of this recipe is that you can put in whatever you have on hand. Depending upon which ingredients you chose and time of day you serve it, you can really have a entirely new meal from one great baseline recipe!

Laura is a mama of three littles {and adopting another!} trying to pursue Jesus daily. Attempting to be genuine and raw, Laura seeks to find the humor in everyday life.

10-Meals-in-an-Hour-2-Square-Graphic-1024x1024

Ruth at Living Well, Spending Less has written a sequel to her great post on How to Make 10 Freezer Meals in One Hour:

I am excited to share this no-bake version of 10 Meals in an Hour, which includes five awesome warm weather recipes that are cooked either on the grill or in the crockpot—no oven required!  (Of course, if you would rather use the oven than the grill, that is always an option—you can generally just bake your chicken covered at 400 degrees for 25 minutes to get the same results!)

In order to make the cut this time, each recipe had to meet ALL of the following criteria: 

  • Deemed delicious by both my kids and husband
  • No pre-cooking required
  • Freezer friendly
  • Easy to cook
  • Uses budget-friendly ingredients and pantry staples
  • No oven required on cooking day

In this one post you will find everything you need to prep 10 awesome freezer meals in about an hour of hands-on time (not including grocery shopping.)
