beans aren’t just for vegetarians

I love beans. (Despite the song, you know the one…) But I find that most omnivores only eat beans when they are presented as “baked beans”. Traveling in France, Spain and Italy two years ago, beans were always on the menu. After glancing at a menu for “butter beans with fresh herbs” I was inspired to make a tapas-esque dinner. Andouille sausage from my favorite butcher, “Martin’s”; butter beans, salad, a spanish tortilla and a couple pieces of sourdough bread. The only thing we were missing was good bottle of Rioja. (Although I don’t know if the Rioja would help Hans remember his biology slides during the test tomorrow. Probably a good thing we stuck to water.)
