This post will be the first in a series that I hope will be helpful during the days of the Corona Virus and long after. I have a full update coming about returning to the blog and some big things happening in our lives but I wanted to get this post up as soon as possible. A lot of people are trying to shop their pantry and make the most of their food dollars making frugal meals like rice and beans recipes.
Right before I took a break from blogging I put together this rice and beans recipes collection. It was a little tongue and cheek because we are (mostly) Dave Ramsey followers working towards financial freedom and one of his favorite things to say when telling people to save money is “Cut that grocery budget and get on rice and beans and beans and rice.” But I also genuinely love a bowl of rice and beans with a piece of cornbread and some hot sauce. I jokingly say it’s the food of my people because that’s what I grew up on. One of my own recipes with Andouille sausage is in this collection. I also love Caribbean black beans and rice or Mexican rice and refried beans. Basically I don’t think there’s any rice and beans recipes I’ve met that I didn’t like.
What started out as a bit of a tongue and cheek post has turned into one that I think is very needed right now. As soon as I decided to dust off the blog (more on that later) I knew this was the first post that needed to go up. I hope it helps you during this time. Maybe if you can’t find one kind of beans you can find another or maybe you already have what you need to make some of these rice and beans recipes. There’s 21 different rice and beans recipes here with a variety of different beans and the recipes range from soups to casseroles to traditional rice and beans so there’s something for everyone. I hope you can find a few of these to help you right now.
We are in this together. I will have more posts coming up that will hopefully help with meal planning, stretching dollars and keeping kids busy.
