Last night I posted about the yummy steak tacos. Tonight is only fitting to post refried beans. I decided to do things a little different tonight. Usually I use Canola or Olive oil in my beans. Tonight I used bacon grease. Holy moly…that was good stuff. It’s my new favorite way to make refried beans.
I sit here thinking about my post last night. I feel like I should probably talk a little more about my cryptic message. I really struggle with the differences between the twins and I. I know they do too. Not everyone has siblings old enough to be their parent. They aren’t bad kiddos…but they’re kids still. Yet their not kids, they’re adults. It’s really hard to determine where they really are. It’s frustrating because they’re in that mode of my friends mean more to me than my family. It makes other family members feel inferior, I suppose. In the end, I need to learn more patience. I think I might expect more from them, then they can offer. At the same time, I think they could try a bit more too. It doesn’t have to be so difficult. There has to be a common ground somewhere, right??
1 can of pinto beans
salt and pepper
1-2 teaspoons bacon grease
Drain and rinse the beans. Add them to a frying pan and add salt and pepper. Using a potato masher, mash the beans. Start with adding 1 teaspoon of grease. and about 2 teaspoons of tap water. This will help make it creamier. After tasting you can add more bacon grease if you desire. Add water as you need for creaminess. We prefer ours a little more thick. Serve and enjoy ya’ll.
