There's like 18 beans in this soup.

I had some lentil soup tonight. Were there any lentils in your soup?

Just beans, bro. Legumes not invited.

My Grandma used to make bean soup, then she died so Grandpa would make it. Now he's dead so no one makes it. Can I have some of yours?

this reminds me of a really really stupid St Patrick's day joke. You've been warned.

In Ireland it is a tradition on St Patrick's day to serve 239 bean soup. Aye, 239 bean soup, because one more would be two-farty.

I smirked tom. I'm still trying to perfect a flavor for my fried chicken. I think I might have a super bowl deadline to make good on it. Any tips?

01-28-2007, 04:29 AM
two words. Death Rain.

but if you're not into incendiary poultry, try this instead.


01-28-2007, 09:33 AM
I liked that joke. A lot.

I'm all over the place with beans. I like 'em refried and have learned to enjoy the black bean. But you get those kidney beans all up in my face and I'm like none of that shit, man.

I have sort of this anti-pellet food stance. Small nuggety pellet-like objects with a soft gooshy middle can really rub me the wrong way. Examples: peas, cottage cheese, ravioli (with the exception of the spinach parmesan raviolis that Costco sells), etc.

01-28-2007, 10:12 AM
I'll make sure I bring some mushy pellet type food to Coachella to throw at you then.

What do you currently use for batter?

01-28-2007, 10:34 AM
What's your opinion on bean salad?

01-28-2007, 10:47 AM
Bean salad is something I would never eat. So far, only seasoned black beans have been able to get past my non-refried bean embargo. Any food that contains a waxed bean is likely to induce automatic revulsion in me just by smelling it. Every bean salad I've ever seen is loaded with waxy beans and oily seasoning. You add slip-sliddideriness to a bean's texture and you've got a guaranteed food I will avoid at all costs.

The kidney bean and the garbanzo bean are just horrifying to me as well.

01-28-2007, 10:53 AM
Garbanzo beans are some of the most wonderful things on earth.

01-28-2007, 01:44 PM
Especially in salad.

01-28-2007, 02:48 PM
Waxy beans are the spawn of Satan.

01-28-2007, 03:07 PM
dude. yabs. do you like hummus?

01-28-2007, 03:53 PM
Oh yeah, pita bread and hummus makes for a very good appetizer.

Ate it again today. With a piece of fresh baked bread and a pickle spear.

18 beans isn't enough!!!!

01-28-2007, 11:57 PM
Garbanzo beans are some of the most wonderful things on earth.whenever i get a salad from the salad bar at Ralphs, there's this kidney-garbanzo bean mixture, and i always pick the kidney beans out of it and leave the garbanzo. i hate that shit.

01-29-2007, 08:33 PM
kidney beans are not good in a salad. they are quite good in a soup-type ensemble, though. i'm pretty sure the texture changes when cooked thusly.

01-29-2007, 08:34 PM

I have that at CPK all the time.

01-30-2007, 03:44 PM
Do you cook your own beans or do you heat them up form a can?

01-30-2007, 03:45 PM
Kidney beans do not have much of a taste to them unless you cook them yourself and add some salt and an onion to the water.

01-30-2007, 03:49 PM

This was my standard lunch for a good year. Well I would often have some fruit or nuts or spinach and and whatever I could find salad but yeah.

Also I would knock you for liking hummus but not garbanzo beans but I like tomato sauces but not tomatos so tev.

tomaz rocks, that joke was funny

01-30-2007, 05:48 PM
Sorry, I had to:

Beans, beans the magical fruit
The more you eat the more you toot
The more you toot the better you feel
So lets have beans for every meal

Beans are beautiful.

I was just using egg yolk and flour.

Thanks for the link tom. I might use it later though since I've decided just to make a themed dish, which would be the traditional chicago dog. I was gonna do indy also, but it seems they're not really famous for much. Corn maybe.

If your grandma is still alive, may I personally extend her an invitation to Coachella 2011, the best event in the whole world!

Wow, you saved my Lily Allen quote. That was a highlight from my posting career. I think I was referring to someone adding me on MySpace. I still go on the "new" MySpace 3.0 and will for as long as that site stays in existence.

My grandma makes a 23 bean soup.
