Pinto BEans

The renters gave me some pinto beans the other day and I followed the recipe and threw in a bunch of random spices and I cant belive how great it turned out. Its been in the crock pot since 4:00 Sunday and still great. I mean you can eat on this stuff on and on. I cut up 2 yellow onions, thyme, all spice, penzy spice, salt, peper, bail olive oil, spicey schechwon sauce from the asian market and I totoally butchered that word. Jalepinoes canned by the renters, and some homemade by the renters ,black berry jelly, to cut the spice. I cant belive how good it was. Tomnight I had a sweet potato and two little squares of cheese and a glass of wine. I have decided to start writing things down so I cn remember recipes

I soaked the beans like it said on the bag over night in water. It actually soaked in all that water. I couldnt belive it. How do beans do that and still stay so hard. IT really is a wonderful biological mystery.

3 cups dried beans
6-8 cups water
3 strips bacon, diced (optional)...used porcuto (itallian cured meat)
salt & pepper, to taste

diced onions
2 whole garlic cloves, smashed (didnt have any)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon oregano

Place all items in a crockpot and put on low for 6-8 hours.
Serve with greens and tomatoes. My favorite is to top these with Chow Chow!
