Homemad Beans in the Crock Pot

I could never cook beans until I got a crock pot.  Cooking beans now just can’t get any easier.  Here’s a recipe that is easy.  If you don’t like the heat you can omit the jalapeno peppers.
Leonora’s Pinto Beans 
Ingredients:
2 lb. pinto beans (or lentils, black beans, your choice!)
2 bulbs garlic
3 jalapenos (fewer if you want less heat)
1 onion
3 Tbl. sea salt/kosher salt
1/4 cup canola oil
Directions:
Sort and rinse beans.
Place in crock pot and cover with water – about 2 inches above beans.
Add salt, peeled garlic cloves (whole or halved), chopped jalapenos, and chopped onion to the pot.
Cook on High for 6 hours.
2 hours into cooking beans, add 1/4 cup oil.
Add water as needed. It may need another cup or two half way through cooking. Just watch to be sure that there is always a couple inches of water above the beans.
When they are done, place beans in plastic containers, with plenty of room to expand as they freeze.
I always write the type of beans and the date I cooked them on a piece of tape and stick it on each container.
Allow the beans to cool a bit before placing them in the freezer.

Just Ask!

Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; (1 Corinthians 6:19 NIV)

The Holy Spirit is God’s gift to us so we can overcome and be victorious. The amazing thing is it’s so personal. Each one of us gets the Holy Spirit in us! When we need help, we can call on Him and the power of the Godhead is present. What are you trying to overcome today? ASK. That’s all you have to do and God will show up.

Digging for Treasure

“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.  (Matthew 13:44 NIV)

When I was young, my neighbors and I, were always digging up the backyard looking for buried treasure.  We never found any treasure but we did make a mess of the backyard.  In the Bible Jesus tells us about a man who found treasure hidden in a field.  He purchased the field so he could claim the treasure.  Jesus’ parable is about the treasure you can find in the scriptures.  There is some treasure that is just below the surface and you don’t have to look far.  There is more treasure to be found when you dig deeper.  May God bless you richly as you hunt for His hidden treasure today.
