Here's a random Monday post about: mayocoba beans, author interview with Megan Boudreau, and Nightsong-a childrens' book about bats.
Every now and then, my grocery store carries Mayocoba beans. They're similar to a pinto beans, but yellowish. I used this recipe from Rick Bayless, then added torn baby spinach. In the kid version (left) I left out pickled jalapenos. I'll definitely make them again. I don't know if it was the beans or the other ingredients, but the dish had a rich, smoky flavor.
I published an author interview with Megan Boudreau today on my book blog-The Rhinestone Bookmark.
Inspired by the Google doodle on Edward Gorey's birthday, I scanned in a few photos from books. I printed them out to let Violet have some fun coloring pages.
Usually in costumes.
Violet has been on a bat kick lately. Nightsong by Ari Berk is a charming book.
