    Well, I love beans, but I'm not sure they should be a regular dinner side order.

    Anyone know about the bad stuff? Like calorie load, any oils, and the dreaded down time in your colon?

    The last thing people our age need is an oily ball that refuses to move.

    Yikes, I just heard my mind say, "... John Mayall, "ROOM TO MOVE"..."

    I open a can of great northern beans and add, 1 avocado large chop, 1 vine tomato large chop, dried habanero, bacon, crumbled goat cheese, cilantro, garlic powder, salt and the juice of 1 lime... I eat it like a salad and it’s pretty good.

    Beans are one of God's most perfect foods..ranking up near Mothers Milk. They only give gas to yankees who dont eat em often. Try bringing them to a boil for one miniute. Add a lid..cut off the fire and let them set one hour. Dump off the juice and start over with fresh water and cook till done. Try that and report back. Thanks.

    Beef is is the perfect food. Beans are for those who won't eat the sacred cow.

    I have started making pinto beans and brown rice, with fried cornbread; and I am happy to say that it is working for me.

    Speaking of dishes from Brazil, could you introduce me to "The Girl From Ipanema." Yeah, I was 14 years old when they played a vignette of a pretty girl at Rio de Janeiro. I didn't talk to a blonde American girl for over six months!

    I was raised on fried corn bread since my Mamas oven broke and we was too broke to fix it. I tired to pay attention on the oven cooked variant of which she made the best...but the fiied cornbread is still sort of a mystery. What do we need to know about how to make it? Thanks. One of my old partners Mamas from NC made us up some fried things about the size of a egg and using white cornmeal Best dang stuff I ever ate. She called em Fritters I think. She say it was not cornbread. Think it might pass for what some folks call hot water corn bread. You ever made that?
