I made beans, woot!

This photo looks gross, I know. And it was the only photo I took. I totally forgot to take before, during and after photos. BUT, as gross as this photo looks, what the pictures is of surely didn't taste gross. In fact, they were the best beans I'd ever had. 

I got the idea of cooking dry beans from a friend of mine. I saw them on her counter once and I was immediately intrigued. "You use dry beans, not canned?" I asked. "Yes..." she said, sounding unsure as to why I would be asking her that. "Are they hard to fix?" I asked with more enthusiasm. "Not at all," she said, sounding more at ease. Maybe she thought I thought she was crazy. However, I've only eaten from the land of canned beans, so I had no idea there was this other world of yummier beans out there.

I only just got around to cooking them last week. Boy, am I glad! Even though they are a little more high maintenance than canned beans, they are really easy to fix, and way more delicious (not to mention more healthy!) for you than canned.

Here's how you make 'em (and yes, I had to ask my mom how to make them, don't laugh at me...)

Tomorrow I'm going to cook pinto beans! Yeah buddy! Hopefully Ross won't kick me out of bed.
