navy bean thinking of it last night i normally soak my own beans and make
it the good old fashion way, have you ever used beans that have already been cooked? i was at the store last night and saw a big jar of mixed cooked beans a brand i have nerver seen. so i bought it think it would work?

and if definately second the chili craving, could go with white chili
not so heavy good for summer or at least it is an excuse.

I make the white chili throughout the entire year. It is a big hit around my house and at fiances work. i usually make a huge pot of it and freeze the leftovers.

I live in the snowbelt of NE, Ohio like homecook, middie and JoeV. I have already made a beef, vegetable barley soup and have everything in the house to make matzoh ball soup. I bet they have made or at least eaten soup, too.

I love soups!!! Especially with sourdough bread for some reason. I have found that soups are one of the easiest and most satisfying meals to make. Once a week I will clean out my fridge and make what I call hobo stew/soup. Basically any realistic leftover put into a pot with chicken or beef broth. Love it!! Girlfriend doesn't always feel the same though. lol..

We have our " rotten shelf soup " which basically consists of anything that is on the " rotten shelf". Whats the rotten shelf, you may ask?? Well, its an vegetable or whatever that was bought for one dinner, used, and what ever was not used gets put on this shelf to either be used in our rotten shelf soup, or ultimately rots and gets thrown out ( or fed to the chickens).

Once, we had baby sitter who opened the fridge to get something to eat ( we wernt home) and the rotten shelf became loose, fell, and a bunch of dried up mushrooms and whatever fell on the floor. She cleaned it all up and put it back, but she must wonder about us. She never said anything and niether did we. But we were so embarrassed. The only way we found out was we saw a dried mushroom that she must have not seen. When we asked our kids how it got there, they told us that the shelf fell while we were out.

As a last statement, sometimes my rotten shelf soup is better than things i run out an buy fresh ingredients for...
