BBQ-ready!

STOVE-TOP BAKED BEANS These are a little different, but so good!  Not overly sweet, but with that smokey, molassesy flavor that we expect in baked beans.  They are full of complex carbs and are the prefect compliment to your BBQed proteins.

LENTIL BARLEY SOUP (AKKK…I was almost tempted to use Rachel Ray’s term and call it a Stewp…Stoup ?… – but I’ll control myself.)  This is very soupy the first day, and then gets thick and more like a stew.  Whatever….it’s wonderful, and adding in some unflavored protein powder can still give you a great shot…
