Oodles Of Noodles


With temperatures dipping below zero and the ground still covered in 8 plus inches of snow O Wise One and I continue to find things to do to amuse us till spring thaw. With the gradual lengthening of days and increase in sunlight the "Ladies" in the henhouse have also found ways to amuse themselves.

Beans! Beans!

O Wise One and I made a trip to the farm store in Carrolton on Thursday for dog food and chicken food before the snow came in on Friday. (So much for the daffodils and my spring prediction) The Dollar store being right down the road we decided to stop by and see what they had on sale. O Wise One found 4 pound bags of dried Pinto beans for $1.00. Oh my for those of you that don't know O Wise One he loves chili of any kind. He could eat it every day. As for myself I love Bean O. Of course he had to buy them and we spent all day Friday watching it snow, canning Pinto beans and doing laundry. We put them in pint jars and they will go into chili, taco soup, refried beans, taco salads  and burritos. For a buck who could beat that. Here it is the dead o winter and we are still canning!
