Wherein I make many tries and delete them jokes about flatulent situations after bean soup.
when you didn’t know you were French- bean soup and poof! You’re the lost montgolfier brother of the first hot air balloons
Anyways – the first of October was cleaning the blinds and a pot of black bean soup.
the fruit strainer made it silkier. (As did the blender whirled about a third of the beans and liquid)
1 t ground cumin
1 15 oz can diced tomatoes
1 gal water
1 pound black beans
at sealevel 2:10 simmering- strained in a big bowl with colander the beans reserving 2/3 the whole beauties. Yuck! More dishes. But pot washed now two bowls and a colander with spoons and both a strainer and a blender!!! But! Straining out about a cup’s worth of bean shell? Glorious! Silken smooooooth. At this point I added my cumin and oops I forgot you add the curry in stages! 1/2 up front then halfway another 1/3 and 40 minutes or less from done adjust if desired… I did!
12 wash cloth rags plus 2 tea towel ones too was the 1.5 inch wide and thick thick slats blinds. Sure I could take them down hose them and never again see them hang again or methodically wipe them clean in smelly oil soap water. Along with two a/c units and all the trim … baseboards yada it just takes all afternoon to pot beans and get methodical. Then explosive….
