I think I love white beans more than red beans 😉 I don’t know why it always forgets about making white beans !!! White beans to me is so much easier than making red beans. I think the last time that I made white beans was over a year ago. I usually make red beans at least once a week but seem like the last few months ….I haven’t made it. Dont know what happened. Last week when I was meal planning …I went back to last year and I had made a batch of red beans this week ….so I decided to make white beans instead. I am so glad I did because IT IS DELICIOUS!!! I will put it on next months meal planning again. I try to rotate my meal planning every month. At the beginning of every month …I look back to last years meal on my phone calendar and I would just copy that for the week or add some of the meal in for the upcoming week if I ran out of ideas. Every NIGHT before I go to bed…I would add in what I made for the evening for dinner or even lunch. If I made something extra special I WOULD MAKE sure to DOCUMENT it in my calendar so that the next year I would add it in the weeks meal planning. 

This white beans and rice is so easy and DELICIOUS. I threw everything in my crockpot that morning and when I got home…dinner was ready. All I had to do was cook up the sausage. I already had it sliced and store in a container. DINNER was ready in 15 minutes!!! Dont you JUST LOVE nights like this?? And clean up was super easy because the only thing I had to wash was the crockpot insert and 1 little skillet that I used for the sausage. I served my white beans in these little soup cup so …stuck everything in the dishwasher and clean up was fast and EASY!!! Dinner and clean up in less than 1 hour!!!! 😉
