346: Humble

The humble bean.
I've never been much of a fan of beans. I knew they were a good source of vegetable protein, but to buy them canned or even dried in small bags, they are as expensive (sometimes more expensive!) than meat. And I have a husband who wouldn't think it was very cool to spend more money on a vegetarian dish when he could be gnoshing on a big ole steak.
But then I bought a load of beans in bulk. They were ridiculously cheap, they are so easy to cook, and I made an amazing chili with them for supper tonight. I'm so excited to start cooking with beans more!

    Seriously like this picture, the color of the beans and the focal point on the little bean in the middle! We have learned to love beans and lentils over here:) A nice change to night after night of meat I say!
