Spicy Bean & Rainbow Veggie ((No-Peek)) Veggie Stew

A pound of dried beans, a col­or­ful med­ley of fresh veg­gies and a few pantry sta­ples are often my tick­et to a sim­ple, tasty din­ner­time solu­tion. While away on our recent vaca­tion, NO-PEEK bean stew made it’s way to our din­ner table sev­er­al times. In order to bring a lit­tle vari­ety to my favorite no-peek method ((see more ideas HERE)), I switched up the veg­gies, spices and cook­ing liq­uid.

A Giant Garage Sale, a Lemonade Stand & a Hopeful Harvest ((and lots of sandwiches for dinner))

Whew. We have been work­ing hard in my lit­tle cor­ner of the world! First, I just pulled off the impos­si­ble & entered the garage sale hall of fame. Pic­tures don’t com­plete­ly express the depth of despair I felt as I sat among the piles, rather heaps, of out­grown toys, shrunk­en clothes & lasterday’s decor & wares.
