- Fort Benning, GA, United States
- I'm an army wife, working mom of 2 kids, and a dancer for fun! My husband Tim works the at the combatives school here on fort benning. I work for MWR at Outdoor Recreation as their admin assistant...I absolutely LOVE my job I couldn't have found anything better! My daughter, Kennedie, was born in January of 04 and our son, Cale, was born June of 09 - that's right they are 5 and a half years apart! Kennedie is VERY involved in dancing. Cale is well on his way to become a fighter - daddy is already working on his punching and kicking techniques! This blog started out as a recipe sharing venture but now it's going to turn into a more "granola" way to live. Cheap recipes more homemade recipes and repurposing things. I'm a crafter at heart so i'm going to throw some of that in their too!

Bean and Bacon Soup
My husband used to eat this when he was little - i had never had it before. We made it with cornbread (i had a traditional cornbread recipe in a pouch and i added sugar to make it sweet!) took me about an hour from start to finish.
2 cans Campbell's Bean and Bacon soup
2 cans pinto beans
2 cans great Northern beans
1 pound link sausage [beef or pork] sliced (i used ground sausage and cooked it that way)
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp. olive oil
Sauté onion, garlic and sausage in olive oil. Add soup, beans, and 2 soup cans water. Simmer 45 minutes, stirring occasionally to keep from sticking. Good with Corn Bread.
This is a pretty cheap meal i only had to buy the canned stuff so i spent $5.02 total (i didn't use a pound of ground sausage and i got that on sale and still have about 1/2 lb left of it for something else!) and i didn't put a whole onion in either!
