Cooking Beans from Scratch

Another way to make your grocery money go further is to make items from scratch.

I buy dry beans and soak overnight, wash and then put into my pressure cooker. I make enough for several meals.

I put in a package of dry kidney beans as well as pinto beans. Once cooked, half is made into chili and the other mashed and ready for Mexican dinners. I freeze whichever I don't use for that night and then when I'm in a hurry I take out the other one and microwave it.
