Black Bean Soup & Fried Polenta.

Sunday 3rd April 2011

Firstly, I would like to say that I’ve recycled this from another food blogger. Every time I look at her blog I always want to make what she posts. Thanks you for the recipe. We all enjoyed it very much. Although, when I asked my son to try the fried polenta he took one bite, without hesitation, screwed up his nose and said;

“Nah, I don’t like it.”

Oh well, you can’t win them all. 😉

Secondly, my mother-in-law is arriving today so the pressure is on to serve up some hot, tasty food. She is a very good cook and is always very appreciative of what I cook, but (perhaps) like all son-in-laws I seek her approval. I decided to make this tonight as she is quite partial to beans and stewy, soupy, saucy type meals.

“Why did you use the beans?” My wife asked.

The beans have been in a jar on my kitchen shelf gathering dust for the last year. I had tried soaking and using them before without success so left them on the shelf, vowing to fight that battle another day.

“Cos’ your mum likes them…” I said.

“Oh right , that was nice of you.”

“…Yeah, *** ***** * **** ****, does your mum.” I added cheekyly.

“Tell me about it.” She replied, rolling her eyes.

I have placed this in yet another new category; vegetarianish.

Anything that can be adapted for vegetarians will be tagged like this.

*Note: My mother-in-law found these words to be offensive so I have removed them out of respect.

About whatdidyouhavefordinnerlastnight

I started this blog to record the meals I make for my son. One of the many great memories I have of my childhood is the food I ate. The smell of boiling cauliflower on a Sunday morning that steamed up the windows, Lamb sandwiches for tea in front of the tele, cubes of raw jelly at nan’s house and of course mum’s homemade pizza (made with a short crust base) I hope my food creates good memories for my son but if nothing else this blog might jog his memory when he’s older! Enjoy.

    I like this new tag (it sounds very fun to say!); and the photo of your meal looks beautiful! I like how the polenta makes a lovely yellow star….

    Kidney beans are not something I willingly choose but yet again you proved me wrong. The beans were just the right texture and it was a very tasty stew indeed. My mum loved the stew and the polenta.
