The last time I posted a recipe it was for Tacos. Mmm Tacos. To go with them yu need refried beans. I started with 1 pound of Black beans. You can get the canned one but I like to cook mine because I can add a few spices in while cooking. Like cilantro and garlic.
Refried Black Beans.
1 lb of cooked beans.
peanut, vegetable or corn oil
Salt and Pepper
Heat up a frying pan (I use a flat bottom Wok style pan) add in about 1/4 cup of oil. Mash 3/4 of your beans (I blended mine). Into the hot oil add all your beans and spices. Mix it up and fry fry fry – that’s why they’re called refried. Continue cooking until it’s a nice pasty consistency. Serve hot.
I wish I had a photo for you but we ate it all.
I can’t talk about knitting. I don’t want to give anything away. Did I start my Mittens or did I work on the kids sweater all weekend? You have the rest of today to comment on when or if you think I started my Mittens and get a chance at winning the handspun yarn.
Why haven’t I been getting much done?
I’ve been spending lots of time on the shop. Which, by the way, there is a group of us getting together on Saturday August 4th. Not an organized group, just been chatting about it. So people are bringing their wheels and we’ll have a potluck supper. The expansion isn’t done, so we’ll be doing this group event in September to celebrate the shop biggening. Here’s where I am on it now:
By this Saturday the shelves and floor will all be painted and we’ll have a space to set up inside in case it rains. Plus I should have most of the stock of undyed fiber all in place. The space is larger than it looks here.
