Recipe for abstinence

I made some tasty English-style baked beans the other week.

I don't know why they're called "baked" beans -- they were entirely boiled. As is much English food.

They were delicious with pickled eggs.

 Heinrich Heine said of English food, 'My God, they boil vegetables and put them on the table just as God made them'!

Señor WRC, I am a dainty dewdrop.  A precious flower, even.  And besides, Mexicans do not have this problem because we are used to beans.  :wench

Yet somehow, my blood pressure is awesome.  Too good.  Sonnets have been written about my blood pressure.

My headache is making me loopy...it may be time to lie down.

This is true. Perhaps I am part Mexican, or maybe I just eat beans alot?   Anyhow, at Chez Frerejacques tonight it's going to be tostones (twice fried plantains with garlic lime sauce) accompanied by from-scratch black beans and rice Cuban style, the way my godmother taught me to make it - no measuring. 

In college I missed the beans from home so much that I invented a dormatory version:  buy a giant can of black beans and a jar of sofrito from your local purveyor of Goya foods.   Order a quart of steamed white rice from the Chinese place. Microwave the sofrito and beans until you hear sizzling, mix in the rice, microwave it again for a minute.  Refuse to feed anyone who doesn't bring their own lime or who boges the hot sauce.

a really good lentil recipe...
 
this one's great for Lent... easy and authentic from my Lebanese grandmother.
 
onions...many.
dry lentils
olive oil.... alot.
salt
water
lime
coriander
 
pour at least 1/2 cup olive oil in pot.
 
SLICE (not chop) as many onions as your eyes can handle..I usually use at least 4 big ones for a lb. of lentils
 
saute the onions until almost black.... you'll see what I mean...NOT black, but a dark brown.I know what I'm talking about.
 
put in rinsed lentils.... cover with water.... enough to cook everybody, and at least 4" above
 
bring to a boil, then simmer that sucker till done.
 
at the end, add salt to taste, and if you're smart you'll add the juice of one lime and a tiny, microscopic dash of corriander or cinnamon.
 
serve with a nice swirl of olive oil on top.
 
for babies, put in the blender.
