The Weekend is here - Hooray!

I can not believe September is almost over and it still close to 90 degrees outside. This is insane. This weather is ruining my whole plan to start making soups in the Slow Cooker. Geez louise - is it too much to ask for Fall weather in September? I just doesn't feel like soup weather yet. Last night I was cleaning out the freezer and I found a ham hock that I had forgotten about (bonus) and it wasn't freezer burned (double bonus). I went right to the computer and googled recipes with ham hocks along with black beans and found this recipe - Cuban Black beans. Perfect. I am going to make it but in the Slow Cooker (SC Sunday). Along with white rice and crusty warm bread. Yum!

Have a great weekend everyone! Oh and today I adding my blog to the Trendy Treehouse's Welcome to New Friends Link. I have been on a few sites on there just saying hi! Stop over for a visit!
