Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Crockpot Beans & Barley


1 onion, chopped
1 carrot, chopped (i used 2, i
1 like them)
1 cup navy beans, soaked
1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard
1/2 cup split peas, dried
1/4 cup pearl barley
1/2 cup mushrooms, chopped
1 cup pinto beans, uncooked
4 cup vegetable broth
3 tablespoon parsley, minced
1/4 cup lentils, dried

Soak white and pinto beans overnight. Saute onion, mushrooms and carrot in 1 T of vegetable broth until tender. Add drained beans, vegetable bouillon, mustard and parsely, bring to bil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 45 minutes. Add split peas, lentils and barley. Cover and simmer another hour until all beans are tender. (Note: I like it spicy so I added lots of tabasco and pepper). I know this is more of a "winter recipe" but I think it will be good cold, also. Things got a bit mushy in the crockpot so it might be better to cook on the stove.
