Day 4: Not really appreciating bagged beans…

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…

Lessons learned:
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.
