Refried Beans Without the Refry
Perfect! I did use 2 jalapenos and kicked up the spices. Had them on a crispy tortilla with melted cheese, chopped tomatoes and jalapenos. Just loaded the freezer with about 14 individual servings. Thank you.

Basic Vegetable Stock
I keep a gallon zip loc bag in my freezer and add trimmings from fresh veggies as I slice and dice along with small bits of leftovers. When it's full, I dump it in the water with seasoning and simmer for a couple of hours then freeze in canning jars. That way, I always have fresh stock available.

Field Salad
Made Taste of Home's Raspberry Vinaigrette posted on this site. Followed recipe. Excellent! My husband had 2 servings and said he almost didn't need the main dish.
