Ummm, Lacey - I didn't want the recipe - I wanted a plate of it already prepared!

I do make several different rice & bean dishes - red beans n rice, sausage and chick peas, carribbean black beans, etc - all of those have more than two ingredients and a variety of seasonings LOL.

Yesterday, though, I literally had just rice...and black beans. Ok, I added a squirt of lime to the beans and a few shakes of tabasco once it was all on the plate. That's it, though. Often, when I'm on my own I really pare it down and go basic - and will eat the same thing for 3 or more days straight.

Now I understand the refuge in the ducts.

Time for that first refreshing glass of morning iced green tea...Wife is heading out to shop for groceries to day without me. I'm staying in and cool. Sort of have a commitment for fish for lunch....

Good Morning all as she wanders in with a cup of coffee.
I put on the pork last night for the pulled pork............the finished product smells and tastes so good but it is not fun smelling pork cooking all night long even with our upstairs bedroom door closed thee fans and an air conditioner and we could still smell it. So not much sleep.
I am cooling it off will pull it and add BBQ and cook some more but that part always smells great.

I am so happy that you came to our new kitchen yesterday and came back today.

Good morning..

Getting ready to go to church...then set the tent up in the afternoon..

Coffee smells good...thanks..

My son likes to do his own cooking & turned us on to grapes in our tuna salad. & he loves rice & bean recipes. I just made one where I added frozen corn & it was a nice touch.

Enjoy your day!

"knock, knock, knock", "anyone in the kitchen?" hum, hum, hum "ok I have to start these meatballs & sausages so I am going in to start", "smells so good in here". "ok now to open the San Marzano tomatoes"---dum, de dum, de, dum" "fly me to the moom---let me fly among the stars--hum, hum, hum, hum--Jupiter &? "Why can't I get this can opened?" "Oh great, Noma will you open this for me please?" "Thank you, I'll get you a glass of tea".

"Ok, while he is doing that I will start on the pork & beef and of course Panko for the meatballs." "Opps, dropped the garlic, I have to go to the store and pick up more, see you all in a little bit. "Noma the other can too please" "be back soon".
