Putting The Bean In "Beanplate": 30 Days of Musical Fruit

white beans
Hang on to your shortpants and wallets, good people, because, in honor of the deepening, increasingly soul-sucking recession and my new president's urging to sacrifice, tighten my belt, and eat more fiber (I'm paraprahsing), Beanplate proudly announces 30 Days of Musical Fruit (The Electric Legumaloo). Every week day for the next six weeks, Beanplate will feature a new bean recipe, some traditional, some globally-inspired, all dirt-cheap.

So, my fellow Americans and citizens of the world, vegans and veggies and meat-eaters alike, the jobless (holla!) and the downsized and the precariously still-employed, let us join hands together and unite for thirty glorious days of nothing but beans. Trust me: when it's all said and done, your bank account and cardiologist will thank you, even if your spouse/partner/roommate moves out.

  3. I am already a musical tooter without the beans, so what the heck, bring on the recipes. It can't get much worse.

  4. I think many a generation before us leaned heavy on beans during rough times. Good call.

  5. Seriously. I bought a bag of lentils and a bunch of beans for the first time tonight.
    Then I wondered what the heck I was going to do with them.
    Now I know.

  6. that reminds me of one of my fave childhood chants:
    baked beans are good for your heart,
    the more you eat, the more you f*rt.
    the more you f*rt the better it feels,
    so eat baked beans with every meal!

    ha! beanplate's in my bloglines for sure X

  7. My local paper recently profiled a local bean farmer. They grow all kinds of beans -- not just soybeans or navy beans but beans I had never heard of that are way more popular in other parts of the world. Anyway, the paper is giving away 4 pounds of this farmer's beans. I had to sign up for the giveaway. Just to see what those worldly beans were like.

    And now, you, one of my favorite bloggers, is going to go all beany on us. Now I know where to turn to find recipes for the 4 pounds of beans, if I should be so lucky to win them.

    Man, I hope I get those beans.

    Americas Fruit
    The More You Eat
    The More You Toot
    The More You Toot
    The Better You Feel
    Then You're Ready

  19. Totally just stumbled upon your blog!

    Uh, freaking love it! And your pictures are beautiful...

    Hey, what about hooking us up with a shopping list so that we can play along.

    If you tell me what to buy in advance I will be right there with you...

  20. I loooove beans! Any kind of beans. I could eat beans EVERY day- and sometimes do. So- I wait with baited breath for the first recipe!

  21. Hooray! I'm so glad to see you're back, and the timing couldn't be better. I've decided to treat myself to my first real vacation in 8 years, and any little money-saving thing helps. I've got just under 4 months to save the money. Daunting, but doable. And 30 days of beans will help tremendously!
