Sunday dinner

Almost every Sunday all the kids and grandkids come out for dinner. I really like it when they do. I am making a recipe from my friend Diane for dinner. She calls it "Chalupa."

It is really easy and it smells so good when it is cooking.

You need:
1 lb of dry pinto beans
3-4 lb pork roast
6 cups water
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 T cumin
1 tsp oregano
1 4 0z can diced chilies
1 8 oz can tomatoe sauce
2 cloves minced garlic
1 T salt
2 T chili powder

Place the pinto beans in the bottom of a heavy pan and then place the roast on top. Then just pile everything on top in order. Cover and bake in 325 oven for 5 to 6 hours. Should be moist but not runny. Remove any fat. With forks, break up meat for filling burritos or taco's.

This is super easy and goes a long way. ( Well..... not if Louis is here: ) I think we will have spanish rice and virgin margarita's. Hmmmmm what should I fix for dessert?

This is what I do when I get bored, I read recipe books. I just got a new one, I think I will go to bed and read it.
