Beans And Beans-Related Program Activities

Filed under: analog — mhoye @ 12:12 pm

There was a narrowly-averted crisis earlier in the week, when a miscalculation (wherein nine hundred dry-weight grams of navy beans was deemed to equal slightly less than one pound) resulted in a monstrous oversupply of baked beans in Casa Hoye. Ominous!

My appetites are legion and every one a monster, but I am not a man capable of consuming four and a half pounds of baked beans; further, I’d say that it’s better for all concerned, by which I mean my fiancee, my neighbors, the fabric of my trousers and possibly the ozone layer, that I not even try. But SMS is the poor man’s bat-signal, and my staunch group of stalwart friends immediately formed a posse on hearing the news. A good crowed showed up with bread and beer, a workmanlike dinner ensued, and a good time was had by all.

And we killed that whole crock-pot, thank God.

Anyone who’d like to be informed in the event of future food-oversupply flanking actions, feel free to let me know.
