GM and Andy M--you two neighbors? What's the neighborhood smell like?
And what Jennienima said.
I have some shredded beef in the fridge, I'm making some pinto beans. I am thinking I'll get some soft tortillas and some taco sauce, and wrap those up tonight.

lol, andy. my wife is very upset with my for teaching my boy to pull my finger. he thinks it's so funny that he doesn't stop until i tell him there's no more rounds in the chamber.

gb, i have had the best success with soaking overnight then cooking the beans for about 1/2 hour before using them in a cold salad. it's sorta like pasta, where you have to remove it from the heat when it's al dente, and then they'll finish cooking a liitle more from residual heat. or if they're already soft, shocking in cold water to stop the cooking. it's a little tricky but worth experimention, if for nothing else the edumacation.
