I eat a lot of pintos but love white beans for anything Italian-ish (and also vegan raw cookie dough dip), chickpeas for being able to do anything well and adzukis! But really any and all of them are fine by me. Very beany.

I don't eat much meat as it is, but it is v. costly. I might be able to do something with a can or two, though...Chicken/chickpeas/tofu and noodles, all good.

I have one pound of dry ones but the markets still have not restocked. Contemplating a 5lb bag from Amazon, but oy. Feast or famine.

I'll see if I can restock veg this weekend, this sounds good and I know there's some coconut milk around here somewhere.

Oh wow that looks so good! Supermarkets still have a lot of empty shelf space where my usual suspects (beans) are concerned, but maybe I can fake a version of this. I make a "goulash" from the A Man, A Can, A Plan cookbook that's just a can of beans, can of mixed veg, shitload of paprika and some egg noodles. It's disgusting but appeals to my confirmed bachelor sensibility.

I'm having a busy, functional day! Did laundry in a machine like a human for the first time in maybe 4 months (bucket in the shower is really fine, but winter blankets and some of the stuff that got moldy in my closet were clamoring for appropriate care) and paid a bill and bought three bananas. About to dig into some reading for work, but it's the new Lindsey Davis/Flavia Albia mystery so I am not exactly suffering. However, I'm trying to figure out a dirt cheap crock pot thing to make for next week with a high likelihood of the ingredients being available when I get to the store, and that is proving to be rough. Still no/very few dried beans, meat is crazily expensive...ideas welcome, but not required.

Ah! I was just looking at this on Facebook, so rad! It's unlike anything I've seen before but also reminds me of a lot of things (Gustav Klimt, Manka's collage aesthetic, the creek where I grew up...). Super super cool.

Oh Jesus. I am not a hugger but *puts on Hazmat suit* (((hugs))). There's a reason I'm not close to what remains of my family and the reason is AUNTS. One at a time they can be OK but together, whew. Too Witches in a bad way. I am so sorry you were put through that.

I'm glad you're readjusting. Early birbs are SO early they do seem a bit witchy, like, the sun is not out even a little bit but you seem to sense it? Or are you calling it forth?!

Excellent list! I may need to get out of my shoegaze retrospective (though it has been fun) and hit some Pet Shop Boys.
