Learnt a new way to do pinto beans.

I usually just soak the beans over night with baking soda but I wanted to eat it that day. So I was looking over the bag and it mentioned to boil the beans in a pot of water for 2 minuets and let it sit for an hour. So I tried that and it worked out pretty good. I boned out a ham and threw the bone in a pot of water to flavor the water.

Now I don't know if I was "supposed" to save the beanie water but I drained it and cooked it in the ham bone water. Had some left over roasted salsa about 2 to 3 cups of it I added it with a bit of garlic. Kind a wished I had some pork butt juice from a week before to add to the beans. All in all it came out pretty good. Had some left over shredded Mexican cheese mix and tortillas. Also some given cow meat that a friend grew on their patch I cooked up carne asada with some left over taco seasoning. I was afraid the cow would be "grassy" but it wasn't so that worked out pretty good.
