This subject is wide open for interpretation...

.........BEANS.........

green beans, navy beans, red beans, yellow beans, black beans, white beans...did you ever think about how many colors beans come in? No wonder there's a recipe called Calico beans.... :)

Thank you Kathleenca...fun choice!

I made a traditional hummus, cooking dried chickpeas. Much easier than I expected!

Traditional Hummus

Cover 1 cup dried chickpeas with water and soak overnight. Drain and place in a sauce pan with 1/2 teaspoon salt and water to cover. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and simmer until tender, about 1 hour. Drain and reserve the water.

Place the chickpeas in a food processor with the juice of 2 lemons, 3 minced garlic cloves, and 2 or 3 tablespoons of the cooking liquid. Process until smooth. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/2 cup tahini, 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, and salt & pepper. Process. Transfer to a bowl and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons chopped parsley. (I first drizzled some good olive oil over the top before sprinkling with the parsley.) Serve with toasted pita. You can substitute one 16-ounce can of chickpeas for the dried.

Yield: about 1-1/2 cups.

Lori! You're killing me! I want some!

My niece suggested that I cook some red beans & rice for dinner on Wed. and then proceeded to invite herself over for dinner.

I guess you know we'll be having cornbread too.
