Whats For Dinner Next Week

It has been such a special time for us, our Grandson Jerame is on break from college and has come to spend a few days with us. Jerame is a Sr. Engineering Student at U of F "Gator Nation". Of course we are very proud of him and just love spending time with him. Like any Grandparent I will just go on and on, so we better get busy with this menu before I forget what we are here to do.

 Pinto Bean Soup

The Pinto Bean Soup

3 cups stewed tomatoes and green chili's
3 cloves garlic minced
3 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons salt

11/2 teaspoon ground cumin

Sort and rinse the beans really well. In a heavy dutch oven bring 8 cups of water to the boil add the beans.
Boil for 10 minutes, cover and turn off the heat, leaving the dutch oven on the burner. Let the beans stand for 2 hours. Add the onion, stewed tomatoes and green chili's, garlic, salt, pepper, ground cumin and oregano. Add enough hot water to keep the beans covered and cook on medium heat for 2 hours.
