beans and collard greens
I put a bag of white kidney beans to soak last night. This morning early I went out to the garden to start some oregano (so far, none of the seeds out of that packet have grown at all –we are talking last year –so we’ll see) and parsley. I was happy to see some of the radishes were sprouting. Then I cut some celery stalks and a huge bunch of collard green leaves. I’ve got them soaking in salt water now.
In a few minutes I’m going to chop up and saute a couple of the store bought onions plus the garden celery and then get the beans to boiling with them. I’ll do another rinse of the greens and then chop and add them in and allow it all to simmer, with spices and fake chicken soup powder, for eight hours. Tonight I should have some nice bean soup!
