Here’s my recipe for the tiny red beans from South Carolina called Sea Island Red Peas.
[Any dry small peas/beans will work: black eyed peas, Zipper peas, Crowder peas, ‘small red beans’, etc.. But the Sea Island peas are best, partly because they’re so small – like the size of lentils; it doesn’t feel like you’re eating a bunch of boring beans.
- 1 or 2 slices of bacon, chopped
- 1/2 cup each of celery, onion and carrot, finely diced.
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- 1 tbs tomato paste
- 2 1/2 cups of chicken stock
- 1/2 cup Sea Island Red Peas
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/2 tsp dry oregano
- 1/2 tsp curry powder
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- Salt and cayenne to taste
In a decent sized saucepan, cook the bacon till crisp, remove, set aside, leave the bacon fat!
Cook celery, onion, and carrot in bacon fat until soft.
Add tomato paste and garlic, stir cook for 1 min.
Add everything else.
Bring to a simmer. Cover, simmer for 90 minutes or peas are tender. Remove cover and cook until thickened a bit – 10 min?
Crumble the reserved bacon on top, if you want. If it didn’t get eaten while sitting on the counter for two hours.
Let’s listen to the first song from Spoon’s “Girls Can Tell”, which turned 20 this week.
Let’s listen to Buddy and Julie Miller!
* In one direction.
The fact is that Limbaugh was fundamentally uninterested in ideas, and by the time he had helped Trump’s improbable rise to the presidency, the host was essentially done with conservatism as a set of principles. “I never once talked about conservatism” during the presidential campaign, Limbaugh told his listeners after Trump’s election, “because that isn’t what this is about.”
For years, he had touted what he called his “Institute for Advanced Conservative Studies.” But in the era of Trump, he announced that he had changed it to the “Institute for Advanced Anti-Leftist Studies.”
On this great day, let’s listen to Robyn Hitchcock!
Few are as responsible for today’s fucked up politics as he is.
