Kale and Beans, Exciting or What?

September 27, 2021

Davis, CA

We (I) finished off a pot of butternut squash soup so I felt it was my responsibility to make the next something.  I will try to climb the stairs to where my wife stands on the culinary pedestal.  This is what it looks like from where I stand.  But, I have to start somewhere.

Having coffee before heading to the Co-op for ingredients.

I came home with kale, determined to use whatever was in the refrigerator.  Except for the bowl of pinto beans that have been soaking overnight.

About 90 minutes later this is what you get.  We’ll see how well it’s received.

Had to sit in the backyard to rest and see if any birds are active.

My sister, who lives in Portland, texted did I know of Dee Andros who coached the OSU Beavers in the 60’s.  It made me dig out this newspaper clipping from the U of O OSU game from 1966.  I played against his team. That’s me, #59, in the white jersey.  We lost.

That’s what’s new today.
