beans are a'cookin'

When you walk 50+ miles with someone, you talk about a lot of things. One of our topics was beans. Last year, Wendy bought dried beans rather than canned and found them tastier and, of course, cheaper. I've bought lentils in bulk for years but they don't need to be pre-soaked. I found a great "Guide to Cooking Beans" in my Vive! cookbook and found out (duh!) that cooked beans freeze beautifully. Since I use about 2 cans of black beans 2-3 times a week, this rocks! I'll let you know how they taste. My mom is coming into town tomorrow morning (not a bean lover, my mom) so I may not cook many beans in the next few days, but soon!
