24rd day of Winter. There are 66 days left till Spring.
To you, whoever you are, when I am gone — remember to
be kind tonight to some lonely person. For me.”
― Tennessee Williams, Notebooks
“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”
“When I give food to the poor, they call me a saint. When I ask why the poor have no food, they call me a communist.”
― Dom Helder Camara, Dom Helder Camara: Essential Writings
Beans! you don’t know beans, that is a hill of beans…..
I was thinking about beans while putting some on to soak this evening, Marfax variety; very expensive here in Maine but traditional. I bought some to see what all the fuss was about….I never cooked them before I moved here….so now I am going to cook them. Do you like beans? Do you have a favorite way to make them? I like bean salad, chili, baked beans, cooked not refried pintos, black beans, chickpeas. I have dozens of ways to cook them ….I have(had?) a cousin who hated beans…I thought that was weird…. we were children…..however some people do not eat beans….I know several….I feel sorry for them really. But not today share your bean recipes, jokes, stories, & no judgement if you do not like to eat them…there are always jokes!
As always you can ignore this and just wave and let us know you are OK( or if not we can sympathize!)
