You know how you start one thing, and it makes you think of something else, so you work on that second thing, but then something in the second thing doesn't work right unless you make changes to a third thing that requires an update to a fourth thing and then you've forgotten what the first thing was in the first place?
That's why we now have recipes in the blog. I wrote a post for Romance on the Rocks, and I wanted to link to a post I made last year. That post made me realize I should also link to my Pinterest page on this new post. When I got to Pinterest, I saw that I hadn't updated one of my boards with a recipe I wanted to add. But when I pasted the recipe into the pin, Pinterest told me it had to be fewer than 500 characters. Since I can't fit a whole recipe into the pin I will have to add a link, but the recipe doesn't have a link so now I'm building links.
Want to make white beans with rosemary? It's really tasty!
I started with this copycat recipe for Zoe's braised beans from Yeah I Made It, but then I clearly went a little crazy with the mix-ins.
1 bag of white beans (Northern, Cannellini, etc)
2 tablespoons of butter or olive oil
3-6 cups of chicken or vegetable stock
2-4 springs of fresh rosemary, chopped or whole
Salt and pepper to taste
Bacon or pancetta
Onions or shallots
Carrots and/or celery
Spinach or kale, chopped
Cooked, pulled chicken
Cooked, chopped kielbasa
Basically anything else you might want to add to beans or a soup
