Back home.  No more restaurants.  Our own kitchen and a semblance of normalcy.

It was a bit chilly the other night and beans really sounded good.  My mom used to make great beans, and I still need a bit of comfort food, right now.  Beans, it was.

I  cooked up a bit of onion, celery, and carrot, and when they were about half-way cooked, I threw in some white wine.  (There’s always a bottle of wine by the stove for cooking…) b Then added 2 cans of white beans and a bit of French herbs and a bit of dill.

I grilled some andouille sausage, a chicken breast, and a duck breast, cut them up and added them to the pot.  Mixed, and put it all in the oven at 350 for about 30 minutes.

A bit of crusty French bread, and dinner was served.

Granted, it wasn’t a traditional “Mom” recipe for beans, but it had the desired effect.  I felt much better after eating them.
