Charlie's Sausage and Butterbean Soup



Charlie has taken over a lot of the cooking and all of the washing up since I’ve been so busy TCB (taking care of business) and TCM (taking care of Mom). Bless his li’l pea-pickin’ heart! Imma give him a great big squishy hug, right here on the interwebs! {{{{Charlie}}}}

ANYWAY, one day he made this soup. The marvelous Roy Ackerman won’t like it for obviously porkly reasons, but we found it belicious.
 

That’s butterbeans, onions, carrots, and locally sourced sausage. My, MY, it was tasty!

Charlie's Mess

Charlie has taken over a lot of the cooking and housework since I've been so busy writing and stuff, which I highly appreciate. He was always a good plain cook, and I enjoy what he fixes.

The other day, he cooked up some fresh green beans and pertaters from the farmers market. Then, he said, he decided to throw in the last of the black beans I'd cooked with onions, cumin, and chili powder. We each had a cup, topped with a bit of vegan margarine.

Looks kinda like a mess, but it was GOOD.

"I'll Make Lunch," He Said

When he said, "Okay, it's ready," this is what I came in to find.
So simple, and so good.

Toasted French bread, an egg from our daughter's chickens, over easy (just the way I like it), and cherry tomatoes from our garden fried along with the egg until they were warm and soft.

Yes, that's a Christmas plate. I use them all year, because I like them. They're cheery.
