This week I have decided to put the Economy Gastronomy method to the test.  The Economy Gastronomy method is to make one bedrock ingredient then make tumble down meals.  I think this will work especially well with my slow cooker so I decided that my bedrock ingredient would be black beans.

Bedrock Recipe –  Slow Cooker Black Beans

Monday – Chili and Honey Chicken Legs served with black bean and yellow rice.

Tuesday – Brie and mushroom omelette with salad

Wednesday – Chicken and black bean burrittos – I will use the meat from Monday’s leftover chicken

Thursday – Going to the Big Swish so will take a sandwich to work.

Friday – Huevos Rancheros with some chorizo to make it more dinnery.

By Friday night I will probably have used all the black beans and will probably want something different like kidney beans.

Saturday – Brazilian beef stew with coffee made in the slow cooker.  I am going to serve this with mashed sweet potatoes and something green.  I could not find a link on line but if you want the recipe drop me a line and I can send it to you.

Happy eating.
