Black Bean Soup

I am doing more menu planning with I'm an Organizing Junkie and finding more deals at Pick N Save for $5 Dinners and putting them together with great recipes:-)

Well, last week kind of fell apart with my mom getting a catherization. She is at home and fine now but it is really throwing me off and clogging up my schedule. This week, I am going to be running to and from 3 doctor appointments, a Girl Scout Service Area meeting, a PTO meeting, a hair appointment AND my youngest starts piano lessons this week. Pray for me!

Thank goodness Pick N Save is helping me out with my menu planning! They have beans on sale for $.89. (normally $1.09.)I bought a bunch to make Black Bean Soup. Check out the recipe below:-)

Here is everything that I am serving this week:

Monday: Spaghetti (Cleaning Day)

Tuesday: Chicken Pesto (Doctor Appointment/Girl Scout Service Area Meeting)

Wednesday: Black Bean Soup (See Reicpe Below) (PTO Meeting/Doctor Appointment)

Thursday: Leftovers (Doctor Appoitment/Piano Lessons)

Friday: Eat Out (Hair Appointment)

I love black beans too and am making a crockpot burrito tomorrow. I hope it's yummy!

By the way, when I was a kid I remember listening to one of my uncles records over and over again. I couldn't even tell you who sung it but the title was Black Bean Soup Don't Lie. Funny aye? I haven't thought of it in years.
