Crock Pot Black Beans and Rice

Let the "I hate cold weather" Whining Begin

I am home today, not planning to leave the house. I am cold. I will be cold until sometime in May. The house is for sale. We want to move to Florida, where my whining will be lessened. I promise never to complain about the hot summers. I would much rather sweat, and yes, I sweat, than shiver.

Here I sit, dressed in a lovely combination of blue sweatpants, gray Mickey Mouse sweatshirt, pink and black flowered socks, and a red and black hoodie, still cold and the furnace is on 70. I am going to complain all day. Since I am home alone, no one will hear me.

I have the crockpot full of black beans.
This recipe is super simple and sooooo delicious, especially served over brown rice.
Rinse and sort a pound of dried black beans.
Add beans, 5 cups of water, and two cans of Ro Tel Chili Fixin's tomatoes.
Cook on high for 6-8 hours or until the beans are tender.I will try to force myself to be in a happier mood. When the laundry is finished and the house tidied, I will be able to relax a bit. I have more things for the Goodwill. I don't think I am in the mood for taking them today, but that might change. I would enjoy walking around Goodwill. Maybe that would help my mood...maybe.
