omg these things are huge.

The other morning I was walking my dog, and noticed that the beans someone had planted in the courtyard of my building were HUGE. Not just big, but scary huge.
Exhibit A:
these giant beans are growing in my courtyard
Look Closely

Exhibit B:
they are each longer than one foot
Here you don’t have to look so closely, because each bean is more than ONE FOOT long.

I googled a little and found “Yardlong Beans” but I don’t think this is them. These look more like giant scary but regular ‘ol green beans.

I know who they belong to and could just ask them, but its more fun trying to google them all day.

Booze and Veggies.

This summer I belong to a great CSA, and have a garden, so I’m already finding myself with a shitload of vegetables. Last night after a few beers at the new neighborhood bar The Scurvy Dog, I made some really unphotogenic but yummy pickles, and whipped up these effin’ delicious onion goat cheese muffins.

They are based on Jugalbandi’s Roasted Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Muffins, but I used what I had in my fridge, which was onions and zucchini and some dill.

I was drunk when I made them, but somehow they came out really well, and so fluffy, I think because I used egg whites instead of the whole egg? They are for a picnic tonight at Blithewold, and I think they will go nicely with the Portuguese wine they are serving (More drinking).

Whenever I drink 4 beers on an empty stomach, I crave some za, so luckily I had the right ingrediants.

Last nights dinner Goat Cheese Salami Broccoli Pizza:

See that beautiful broccoli, its from my garden. I know, you are jealous.
