Bay Leaf, giving it some attention

(Dan) #41

Thanks for the guidance. I am still a steak eater but I enjoy breaks from beef too.


Don’t get me wrong l’m got a vegan. I like meat! But beans/legumes have a special place in my repertoire. It’s red light food.

Me too. I forget how much I enjoy black beans on their own.


Assuming you have a lot of beans in tasty liquid now all you need is some yellow rice to put it over!
(I cheated today and got yellow rice and saucy pinto beans from the dominican place i love- it’s an unholy crapton and stupid cheap. )

You are reading my mind!


LOL, I just had to say this article cracked me up. I’m definitely on the “not sure about bay leaf” side, but I will usually add them in when the recipe calls for it. I just don’t know if it might change the dish, even though I’m hard pressed to describe its scent or taste. I always use fresh from the store too, but I know those pre-packaged versions have differing quality.
