I neglect beans. I really do. For no other reason than I never had them growing up, so rarely think about them… except when it’s Mexican night! Damn, are they good.
I like the idea of a brothy, soupy, beany dish to be eaten with a hot baguette. Flavoured with herbs and fresh tomato and garlic. Why don’t I eat this more, WHY?
Corn chowder is totally one of my favourite dishes of all time. I have a cracking recipe and love when it gets cool enough at night to finally eat it three times a week. Or something like that. It’s so hearty and full of sweet corn and potato chunks in such a gorgeous, creamy soup. I think I might bump this one up to tonight now…
And my love affair with mushrooms continues. I’m going to have this with fresh fettuccine, which is an absolute must in this situation, if you ask me. Well, you haven’t, but anyway. Press on!
the breakfast frittata, polenta shapes and zucchini slice are for the babe, who is thoroughly enjoying eating everything these days. Except banana. And strawberries. And tomatoes. But is ruling at spoon skillz as long as I’m filling the spoon for her. Just like Alicia Silverstone, only with cutlery!
