Lunchtime Experimentation.

As reported earlier on this blog, I've given up the in-house deli service that Mr. Sophanne is more than happy to offer. It's been three weeks and I haven't starved.

Week one was the refried bean/taco salad.

Weeks two and three were black beans and rice- mmm how I love them.

This week is an experiment- It's a salad/spread of sorts inspired by some internet readings. It's comprised of black beans, garbanzo beans, white kidney beans, pine nuts, chopped tomato, succotash (the frozen corn and lima bean kind) and garlic virtually swimming in sour cream. I did not intend for it to be swimming but I foolishly dumped the whole container in before mixing.

I'll be wrapping this up in a burrito shell for lunch.

I have the camera and a picture would be possible but that may prejudice the opinions I seek out. Some things taste better than they look. I hope.

I purchased some microwave popcorn as a back up. There's a candy machine nearby-

What are the predictions?

Not a bean lover here. Sounds pretty healthy, though (except for the sour cream, but who wants just beans?).

I predict no one really wanting to be around you towards the end of the day after you eat all those beans =) On the up side, it sounds like it would taste pretty good....

I put plain yogurt in a strainer lined with a paper towel and let it drain into a bowl in the fridge overnight. Then I have a yummy low-fat alternative to sour cream. Your lunches sound great!
