Funny. The collective consciousness must be at work. I bought a two year membership to Marukai, the S.Cal. Japanese grocery chain the other day and the amazing selection of pickled vegetables they carry was a predominant reason.

There are parts on my person which are most grateful they and the rest of me do not live in Pasadena. My thighs and butt leap to mind, but much yum.

I will be doing this. I have the same problem with milk. For starters, it ALWAYS smells like it's gone bad to me. This sounds like a much better solution than holding my nose while I drink it.

I needed that first photo. I have so many pretty (recycled )jars I use for food storage but they're about to be even more appealing. Have sharpie, will draw.

I wish I could justify a collection of cloches. They make the most mundane objects shine.

As both Shaheen and Kate said, a pressure cooker is a beans best friend. If you're not averse to pork, find a butcher who has "slab" bacon. It makes all the difference in the world and you can stop there. If you are averse, as I am, ( my husband is the omnivore ) then before you put the beans in the pressure cooker, use the pressure cooker pot to saute the holy trinity ( onions, bell pepper and celery ) with a little garlic until they all begin to get a little color. Add the spices you crave and cook until they bloom. Bay leaf and thyme work well with white beans a la cassoulet. Cumin/chilies/ginger/No.12 on your resolution list etc for garbanzo beans/dal/indian Cumin/chilies/cocoa work etc with pinto/black/latin leanings etc. Add the beans and the appropriate amount of water. Put on the top and cook them according to your pressure cooker instruction.

I doubt any letter would ever make it to its destination, but it would be an argument in favor of being a postal worker.

ah, the call of the sparkley polish. Surrender is the only choice, even if it does take an entire bottle of acetone to unsparkle.
