Bagged beans are silly things. I soaked them for 18 hours and cooked them for 3 and they are still hard… I’m guessing these things are from the Bronze Age. The cost savings would be significant, but I think I’ll stick to the canned stuff from here on out.
I ate almost to the calorie limit yesterday. Huge dinner, all veggie stir fry (check it out in the menu at the bottom).
I had to cave a tiny, absurdly small bit on the no fast carbs rule. I made K an eggplant terrine for our anniversary and had to use bread. It had to pass the taste test so, well the rest is obvious. I ate bread, 1/4 slice…
I found that a bit of kim chee worked in the stir fry as well. It added a kick.
Bagged beans suck.
Steamed in the bag Brussels sprouts are not as good the next day.
