    These are Turtle Beans(black) that i grow...

    Cooked some rice, celery,fresh scallions and added some of my dehydrated fresh ground powders and toasted ground cumin.The pepper is a fresh mirasol that was added to rice as well.

    One of my favorite dishes,especialy leftovers/lunches

    Some marinated thighs over lump with a touch of olive wood

    Some of my fall/winter mustard greens and kale.


    I love mustard greens.

    Washed and sauteed with bacon fat

    Ready for dinner with bacon bits and a little red wine vineagar added

    Dinner.Will be eating the kale and mustard greens all winter.

    Alex, if it is possible, you have outdone yourself with this meal; or maybe just touched on my favorites....I don't know or care, it's just all good!

    Your black beans and rice should be featured in a magazine....beautiful pics of everything and nice slices of celery too. Course, your home grown and made peppers and spices make it even better.

    Plus, your greens and smoked chicken make a down home Southern feast that needs to be shared with everyone~ some serious eatin'!

    Definitively well-earned points for you! [​IMG]

    I'm with john and the gang here too. Alex not only are you a great guy to share your extras with the seniors you are making dishes like this one too. [​IMG]for sure. They are more than deserved with all you bring to the dish and our own recipes book we all have here. You and jeanie are a great impreration to us all. I was just thinking I haven't seen why you grow your cows and pigs. Ok so now it won't let me give you anymore points.

    Until recently (with the exception of zuppa toscana) I never even used kale as anything more than a garnish but have found that it is a great addition but don't generally find many good recipes for its usage.
    Great looking meal, not just the greens but that rice looks like something out of a magazine, another fine meal Alex [​IMG]
