I've wanted to start a blog for a long time. The other night my husband actually took the first step of creating his own blog. Not to be outdone I thought to myself, “No way! If he can do it, I can do it, too!” A few clicks of the mouse and here we are. It's just that easy.

The title “Soak the Beans” came from a chore I do almost on a weekly basis, or sometimes just think about doing. Ever since I discovered that soaking beans is no big deal, I find that just remembering to soak the beans has become the biggest obstacle. When I forget to soak the beans we eat lentils or grilled cheese sandwiches. On those nights, I feel like a failure. I mean really, it's not that hard to soak a pound of dry beans, and I love beans.

So what can you expect to find in this blog? Good question. You can expect to find blog entries primarily about frugal living because we have a one-income household in these "hard economic times". You will also find entries that discuss raising a child with special needs, family dynamics, matters of faith, things that amuse me, things that annoy me. In short, you can expect to find blog entries about things I do or think about a least once a week. Welcome to Soak the Beans. Enjoy your stay.


  1. Congrats on the new blog Claudia! Looking forward to reading more entries. Ciao, Bryan
