Today was a perfect day for cooking. I filled one pot with dried pinto beans and water. I filled the other pot with my favorite stroganoff recipe. I started the oven at 10:00 a.m. Dinner was ready at 4:00 p.m. Might have been ready sooner, but I didn’t check. The beans needed a little help on the stove, but only because I didn’t add enough water to keep the beans covered and the top beans didn’t finish cooking. My fault. But they were delicious and so was the stroganoff.
