ISO good bean recipes ...

... trying to eat meat rarely but itís tough during the pandemic. Iím trying to stockpile for when things get worse in the fall and cook for fun with my kids. And I have a picky eater that refuses 98% of all veggies and healthy foods. 🙄 I was vegetarian before the plague but it seemed silly to make two meals each night and wasteful to do so. Anyway, I frequently just eat the sides and let them at the meat but I need more protein sides.

So talk to me about beans. I love Lima beans and chickpeas, split peas are ok and red kidney beans are a favorite too. What are some recipes you guys love?

Cooking show on Netflix I found/love

Nadiya Hussain's Time to Eat is focused on shortcuts for moms but has some interesting desserts, breakfasts and flavor combinations.

Worth checking out!

Costco had gorgeous packages of clear-eyed trout this week so I bought some. I had never scaled and cooked whole fish before.

I planned to grill it but it was too rainy so I just baked it with some lemon and this great blueberry/lemon salt. It was really good. We will definitely have it again but the family said I have to cut off the Heads next time. 🤣

Is anyone else terrified listening to this...

... expert on Rachel? Sheís really painting a scary picture of the coming months and the spread of Covid. Much of the future spread across the US will likely be because we do not have a national strategy (Go to Florida where itís ďopenĒ and come home to NYC and infect the dude at the bodega), and because the CDCis being stifled.

Proud liberal mama...

I just had to post. My college freshman just headed out with friends (complete with BLM sign and mask) to protest.

Might not be a big deal for every family but my great grandpa was a white knight something in the Joplin KKK. My dad used to go to picnics in their cave outside of town and as a teen helped the local grocer package up baskets of fruits to take to local widows and poor whites that the KKK paid for.

I grew up with a racist parent and rejected it although I have to fight the crap that was beaten into my head.

She is different. Her generation is really going to change the world.

Looking for recipes containing jerky!

I help out Herky Jerky with marketing and I do some cooking with it for photos/recipes on our social media. I want to really build that part up for the fall wave of Covid. Iím blanking a bit, though.

Iím making chipped beef today but I am looking for recipe ideas. Anyone here happen to have any? Or a recipe you think would convert easily?

Looking for a really good White Lily flour biscuit recipe

Old fashioned and fluffy and tender. My 88-year-old dad keeps talking about the biscuits my grandma used to make and I am just not happy wasting $1 million dollar bags of flours in a crapshoot online. Lol

Anyone have a favorite family recipe?

ISO "Good Democrat" businesses - Help

The highest compliment my dad pays someone is that they are a good Democrat. What are some businesses we can support that you know are run by Dems? I know Herky Jerky is! Lol. But I want to support more. Post who is blue!?

The Pelosi Rip! Let's start it!

Ok. I work in marketing in a red state (playwriting doesnít pay much unless you are on broadway.)

Anyway. I got that damned postcard from the government with COVID-19 recommendations on it this morning. With Trumpís freaking name on the front in 48 point type. 🤢🤢🤢. WHY did his name have to be on it? Why not Fauci? Because of his enormous ego. 🙄

I want to film myself ripping it up and post it on social media with the hashtag #thepelosirip or maybe #PelosiTear (since sheís 80 and RIP might be misleading).

I canít without losing my nice but Fox loving clients. (One whom is literally calling all this ďridiculousnessĒ as of WEDNESDAY 😳.)

People. Do this for me. Lol
