Seize the Day

The weather yesterday was perfect, or as near perfect as we get here in Idaho in May. We were able to get out and do a lot of weeding and mulching in the beds we’ve already planted.

I also started some flower seeds in my lovely new pots.

We put in another row of potatoes, two rows of bush beans and finished planting the sweet corn. So it was quite the productive day. Of course it came at a price because today we’re paying for it with wind, rain and cooler temperatures, forcing us back inside. 😣

Which is fine because I have plenty to do. I recently bought a bunch of these 15 bean ‘Cajun hambeen soup’ bags and wanted to vacuum seal them so I’m working on that.

Each bag fits perfectly into a quart sized jar, with room for the spice packet at the top. They are just over $2 a bag, so it’s a great way to stock up a few bags at a time.

It says there are 16 servings per bag, so I think for the money it’s a great deal. Just the fact that there are so many different beans in it appeals to me. We have a ton of pinto beans already so I wanted something with more variety and this definitely has it. Here’s a screenshot of the ingredients:

Even if I can’t eat the spices that come with it (I don’t know if I can but I’m not in the mood to be a guinea pig to find out lol) I can use my “safe” ones to make soup for really, really cheap. Throw in a hambone or some sausage and it should be delicious!

I’ll make some in the slow cooker to try it out soon and share the results here. πŸ™‚
