The Sequence, and Weather Report
Today it is pouring rain outside. It is cold, damp, and dark in the house. I wanted to make something wintery for my supper and decided on baked beans. I don't really like baked beans very much, but I didn't want to go to the store to get different ingredients. Corned Beef would have been good, or pot roast. I could have made some bread. My old favorite Arroz con Cerdo came to mind as well, but all would have required a trip to the market. This is how I disappoint myself at this stage in my life. I settle for the easiest path, so the result of most of my efforts is a diminished substitute for what I really wanted.
Well, the beans have soaked and now I must simmer them for an hour before I put them in the oven. It will be late when they are done.......perhaps around ten o'clock.
