  1. Had to laugh as I saw the “eat more beans.” My daughter & I have a standing joke about cooking beans. She has given up after trying 2-3 batches in her crock pot…& they wouldn’t get done. I decided to try a batch today. Soaked them for 10 hrs overnight, put them in the crockpot & they cooked most of the day & those little “boogers” still aren’t done. What gives?
    BTW, didn’t add salt.

  2. Unfortunately if I gave up unlimited texting my bill would skyrocket! When you have two non-stop texting teens, unlimited IS saving money 😉

  3. I’m not sure, but I’ve read that if you put salt in the water you’re beans will not soften. Season afterward.

  4. I’ve been using the 45 dollar straight talk plan mentioned for a while, it IS unlimited texting and data for my smart phone.

    I have a bag of lentils. It says they don’t need to soak. I believe you cook them similarly to rice. Maybe its the variety of beans you are using.
