vote: white bean soup

If you are Canadian, you should be voting today. This is a very important election and I’m afraid we’re going to join our southern neighbours in electing a crazy conservative leader. My fingers are crossed. I voted NDP. How about you?

Have you noticed my audioscrobbler link to the right? Now you no longer have to imagine what the heck I’m listening to on my itunes! I know you were curious!

Last night I made an easy, super cozy and delicious soup with things I found in my fridge and cupboard. The previous day I had soaked some dry white beans overnight and then boiled them for close to an hour with a bundle of rosemary. Using dried beans makes for a firmer bean which is way better than canned. If you are using canned beans, wait until the last 15 minutes of cooking before adding. Trust me. Yum!

    This soup looks delicious and comforting … and comfort is what we’ll all need if the evil party wins today. I have my fingers crossed that Olivia Chow won in my riding.

    Yes, do vote! Just look south to see what happens when people don’t- crackpots start acting as if they actually represent the mainstream majority! Tasty-looking soup, BTW.
