This would be an awesome picture for a post about pumpkins, wouldn't it. I was supposed to buy a pumpkin yesterday so that we (two) too might find ourselves in a veritable pumpkin patch of taste, scent, sound, what am I talking about.

I did not buy a pumpkin. No, we're having a bit of a post-holiday pantry-clearing around here, and one of the first layabouts receiving a gentle but firm push into the fire was an open bag of white beans that's been Moth Bait for a dangerously long spell.

Beans. Is there a sexier 40th birthday meal? Hopefully you know not to answer that. But to be honest, there wasn't really much celebrating going on yesterday...that's been pushed out a couple weeks until there's some time to really savor it.

No, yesterday was pure productivity, and this meal was pure fuel: white beans, kale, tomatoes, garlic, rosemary, olive oil, and lots of Parmesan cheese. Served with a piece of buttered toast, a totally worthwhile winter meal. I still have leftover beans, though...so we may have to double up on our Fueling the Cloud Factory theme by making Brussels Sprouts with White Beans and Pecorino tonight. BOOM!!!
