Last week, was the unofficial bean week, my recipe included. It must be that Fall air starting to make us crave bean soups, because it seems like half of us were making bean soups last week!
Be sure to check out everyone’s great bean recipes from last week, but the one I am going to highlight is actually not a bean soup, but a beef stew recipe! Now that I’ve stuffed myself full of beans, I am really for some meat, I think. So this recipe stood out to me! Simple, frugal (though not quite as frugal as our bean soups), and nourishing, it sounds sure to please. Thanks, Moms for Safe Food for the delicious recipe!
Now what do you all have for us this week? Can’t wait to see what you have in store for us.

Still in my recent simple theme, today I share my favorite, frugal way to make carrots, in Pan Fried Buttery Carrots. Now this is the way to make cooked carrots and enjoy them too
Amanda @ Rebuild from Depression Here is a frugal protein option that fights depression!
Emily @ Life in Cincinnati Homemade “Instant” Oatmeal Packets Here is a frugal and healthier option to replace the Quaker instant oatmeal packets in your pantry. While the oats aren’t soaked (and therefore still contain the phytates), they are still a better alternative to sugary, extruded cereals. They cook up quickly and are easy to make at work, home or wherever you need to be.
Wardeh @ GNOWFGLINS Homemade Kamut Pasta (Soaked) I think Kamut is a great grain to use for pasta because of its hearty, nutty flavor. We all enjoyed these noodles very much. The first night, we topped them with homemade chicken soup. Then the next day, I reheated the leftover noodles in a bit of water on the stovetop, to steam them back to warmth. We topped those with beef stew.
Katie @ Kitchen Stewardship If you like trying to duplicate storebought dressings, this reverse engineered and healthified homemade version of Kraft’s Asian Toasted Sesame Dressing is definitely for you!

This weeks recipe is one of our favorites, and is one of my bean recipes (Indian Lentil Stew. LOL I’ve served this as a soup, a stew and brought it to a pot luck as a side dish. This is the one my family asks for if I haven’t made it for awhile.
