About Me

We moved out to Portugal to live a frugal but better , simpler and peaceful life, our house is a very basic, semi ruin, up in the hills outside Figueiro Dos Vinhos, where we work our land, enjoy life with each other and our dogs, and hope to make the smallest carbon footprint we can,

We usually have it with Rice 'n ' Beans.

Rice 'n' Beans

dash mixed herbs

Remember to soak the dried beans the night before. ####
Boil beans for ten mins then simmer till soft.
