Times of lean and times of plenty occur throughout life as well as times of examining the health and well being of one's family.
I believe in a well-balanced, omnivore diet based on what is available locally, what our ancestry tells us, and what is on sale. *wink*
As we seek ways to burn smaller holes in our wallets and keep our health, I consider the humble bean. I'm sure we could sustain ourselves quite nicely on a day or two a week of beans. But, cooking them in delicious ways escapes me.
If you have a recipe or suggestion, please share in the comments.
