Oh my gosh, it's a recipe

I looked back and I think the last time I posted a recipe was in November. Uh, that's a long time.

And yet I have managed to eat during all that time! I must be cooking something!

Here is one I made a couple of weeks ago -- back in January. We had it with the beer bread that Sally gave me the mix for for Christmas. (She even gave me the beer. So much appreciated!) You can't go wrong with that mix ... but the combination with the beans ... was yum.

This recipe also has the benefits of being vegetarian, ultra cheap, super easy, and made almost completely from food storage ingredients, except for the fresh garlic. I guess if it was Armageddon or something you could substitute garlic powder.

Fagioli all'Uccelletto (Tuscany Beans)

1/2 c olive oil
4-6 cloves garlic, minced or pressed (don't be a chicken, now!)
6-8 c cooked white beans
1 large can tomatoes with juice
About 3 c. (2 cans) broth of your choice -- chicken or vegetable
1 tbsp ground sage

Saute garlic briefly in oil. Don't let it brown or burn. Add broth, beans, tomatoes and sage. Simmer 20 minutes.

This is the nicest winter dinner served with a nice salad full of bitter greens and a crusty bread. Some nice, hard grated cheese to sprinkle on the beans is a bonus, too.

Honey! It's liquid yeast bread, remember??? ;)

That does sound like a fabulous use for it... curses! I'm of beer and mix!
