I love black beans. I’m not ashamed to admit that I have half a shelf in my pantry devoted to them. And so today, I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite black bean dishes from the recipe index and a funny little story about beans.
I have been hoping and hoping that Costco would get black beans in sometime so I could buy several at once and at a lower price. All they’ve had is pinto, re-fried beans, and ranch beans…but no black beans. A few weeks back Eric and Logan went to Costco for me. While Eric was shopping he spotted some cases of black beans and loaded up the cart with FOUR CASES of black beans!
What he didn’t know was that I had already bought about 10 cans the day before when I went to the grocery store. In the check out line someone asked him why on Earth he needed so many beans. He shrugged (or at least I imagine he probably did) and said “Just to have.” When he got home he told me that he had a present for me. I never would have guessed beans, but when he told me I was so excited!
