FOOD: Bean recipes

Food
-giveth meat unto her household

This is a Proverb's 31 series post

Are you looking for frugal food ideas and recipes.  Look no further than the bean aisle that contains dried beans at your local grocery store.  There are canned beans as well, but it is so simple to turn your crock pot on high and let the beans cook for about 2 hours and you will have soft and ready to eat beans in a flash. Most stores offer a 16 oz bag of beans for about 1.00.  You can make a meal to feed your family with under 2.00 if you are wise and creative.  Below are a few examples:
