It’s the start of a long weekend here and already the volume of the house has risen higher than I’d like. Toddler wants to hit everyone and throw things which is just such fun 😒 middle child bounces constantly… luckily Miss 8 is being an angel and super helpful lately. Anyway….I hope you all have… Continue reading Lemon Slice

The kids were pretty well behaved…toddler slept half the drive so maybe that’s what made it seem more peaceful… Continue reading Chicken, Fetta & Carrot Patties

They work… Continue reading Vanilla Biscuits

Slowcooker Black Beans

So this post is as boring as bat shit but it’s a staple and I had to share.

Black beans go with so many dishes, I add them to burritos, tacos, chilli, wraps, nachos…you get the idea. We pick up a bag from the Central Markets here in Adelaide and they cost next to nothing.

First thing to do is soak your beans overnight, simply place in a large bowl fill with water and leave.

In the morning drain the beans and add with a few bits and pieces to your slow cooker.

  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 capsicum chopped
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp chilli (optional)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 pound black beans
  1. First saute onion, capsicum and garlic
  2. Add everything to the slow cooker
  3. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8. *Note, check after 4 and if any crunch to beans cook longer
  4. When cooked and cooled divide up into portions and freeze.           **if using on the day add a some lime jucie and coriander for a kick then add to your dish 

Simple boring recipe and probably easier to buy canned but I still get icky using canned goods so prefer this method.
