we know China is under pressure over the many scandals regarding food and drug safety that are coming to light. but this is a harsh punishment indeed:
was sentenced to death today amid a wave of consumer safety
scandals that have rippled across the world.
it started innocently enough, a beans'n'sausage recipe
however, George Carlin gets the last word on the farting arts:

I don't know why the sound clip is paired with scenes from Thomas the Tank Engine; perhaps to confuse the bots.
a couple of months back we went to New Orleans. my first trip there. it was fun and depressing at once. I still have hundreds of pictures to sort through: several posts worth.
is true what they say: NOLA is an eater's paradise. just not a vegetarian's paradise. most of my time there I took my nourishment in liquid form. walking the Quarter with a beer in each hand is a good way to get the spirit of the place. and our hotel had a nice bar and cool barkeep.
*ahem* back to the food issue: the one thing that drove me crazy was the omnipresence of red beans and sausage everywhere. with andouille sausage, natch. I didn't ask for a vegetarian version as I suspect that may be a fast way to get run out of town. ;P
I wanted to recreate red beans and sausage at home. so armed with a package of mam papaul's red beans seasoning, I set out to desecrate a cajun classic.
first you get your beans and soak'em
the next day the beans look like this. drain'em
let steve inspect'em
cover the beans with
water, about 2 inches over the beans
and bring to a boil. cook at a low boil until beans are soft. ~ 2 hours
now, get onions and sausage
chop the onion
add the sausage and onions
to the beans
then, get the seasoning mix
and add it to the pot
cook for another 15 minutes or so and serve
don't look like much, but was this ever good! vegan as prepared. I suppose rice would be nice, but it was great as is
