Beans in plastic. It's the Devil's work. Beans in cans. Beans in cans. BEANS IN CANS.

I ate a can on Sunday that was best before August 2018. But weren't we all.

Iron Man...

At some point this week I plan to make homemade baked beans with veggie sausages. I'm pretty sure I'll be able to fly once I've eaten that.

So Ian farts in the face of all the efforts to protect the planet...

I have to confess, despite the home-made baked beans and veggie sausage concoction (served with a big helping of sauteed potatoes and a fried egg), there's not even a breeze this morning.

There were a bit of a riff on that (though without the bucket of molasses) and the pork was replaced with veggie sausages as I was seeking to recapitulate the tins of beans and sausage but with a thoroughly middle-class sentiment. Cannellini beans (because they didn't have haricot) beans, scallion, garlic, tomatoes, tomato puree, smoked paprika, Worcester sauce, sherry vinegar, parsley, a dash of pomegranate molasses (all I've got) and a couple of hours on the hob. Worked quite well.

The New Englanders are quite competitive about their baked beans (and their chowders, of course).

A tortilla rolled up without the ends folded over is a tube not a wrap  :demon:

To quote Guy Fieri "Everywhere else in this country, we call that a Burrito, but you call it a wrap"

Even when they do the bottoms they Do It Wrong and you end up finishing on a mouthful of bread that you have to chew into wallpaper paste. Wraps are mostly made of fail. Burritos are where it is at.

o hai mr heinz!

I don’t know what you've done to your Reduced Salt & Sugar Snap-Pots of Baked Beanz, but lately they’ve taken to jumping out of the pot and all over the inside of the microwave.  Plz to put them back the way they used to be.

The penalty for individual pricing vs selling by weight (an generalist till operators who can't aren't trusted to recognise individual varieties of fruits).

Even if they are sold by weight, they are stickied so checkout operator prices items correctly, if for example different varieties of apples are on sale.

I'm still waiting for delivery of my ridiculously over-priced Artichoke & Spinach dip.
The order for which was placed on February 18th.
Middle class? Moi?
DHL claim to have it in their possession.
Which, at best, is a worry.
ETA - Its still in New Jersey  ::-)

Spinach and artichoke dip is one of those ubiquitous American things (usually found under starters). Maybe it doesn't want to leave? Maybe the Jersey Bears have it? Or the postal facility is plagued by the Jersey Devil.
