Hello my kiddos!
Black beans are another food that was weirdly missing from my childhood. We ate a lot of red beans, white beans and split peas – but never black beans. I wonder why? Maybe because they are usually more often typically associated with Southwestern foods.
Now, if I had to pick a favorite bean they would be right up there tied with garbanzo beans. I love them! They have a rich, smokey taste that works really well with all kinds of dishes, not just Southwestern. Luckily, you both like them!
Maybe not so lucky for all of Joel’s three cute kids. When we married them, all of us got to experience tons of new foods and traditions. Which for the most part just added to the adventure of life… Except if you hate beans (and Hamburger Helper… ugh [note from Joel: hey! Do not taunt Hamburger Helper!])
Christine loves black beans more than anyone else in the family, so I think she makes up for the serious lack of love from Danielle and Alexander!
Mom (and Cyndi!)
