I made a delicious black bean soup last night. It was chock full of veggies such as onions, celery, red pepper, and habanero pepper along with black beans and pinto beans. The recipe comes from the Part-Time Pro Bono Baker blog. I made the following changes to the recipe: used Earth Balance instead of butter, doubled the amount of cumin, and omitted the salt (since the canned beans are not drained). I’d definitely make this recipe again. To go with the soup, we snitched a few mini cornbread loaves from the double batch I made for my mom.
Now moving on to a crazy story I saw last night on our local news (Chicago). Apparently a coyote wandered into a Quiznos in the Loop! The link to the article features a slideshow and a video clip of the news story. There is even security cam footage showing the coyote walking through the front door. Be forewarned though, the pictures of the coyote being removed may be a bit disturbing.
