I shared my exciting job news in my last post. While I’m ecstatic to finally be bringing home a pay check, I’m still committed to saving money. I do not want to start spending frivolously just because my husband and I will be making more. Thus, I’ve decided the Crock Pot is my new best friend. It cooks while I’m away, makes plenty of food for left-overs and does not require expensive ingredients! Perfect! This week I’m going to cook up some Festive Black Bean Soup. It looks super tasty, healthy and not to mention easy on the wallet. Take a peek!
