Tonight's dinner was salmon, salad (Romaine lettuce, carrots and celery), curried rice, and rye/spelt biscuits. I needed another side dish. Black beans sounded good, but I wanted something different.
I mixed a can of black beans with a can of great northern beans. The reaction from the family was interesting. My daughter does not like her foods mixed together. She said the beans looked really nice and that I should fix them that way for company. But she picked out the black beans first, and then ate the white.
My husband loves casseroles. He promptly mixed the beans and rice together and enjoyed them. My son ate a large helping, saying he likes the way the beans taste together better than when they are separate. We have settled on the name of zebra beans for this dish.
Obviously tonight's menu was aimed more at the As than the Os. I ate a very large salad, a normal helping of salmon, and one spoon of beans. The As ate balanced amounts of everything. My son ate a whole lot of salmon and a lot of everything else. He was on his way to work out at the gym.
