it's alright, 'cause I'm saved by the bean!

okay, so my chicken leg is wrapped in layers of plastic (for odor control) in the trashcan.

with some quick thinking, I remembered that Ii bought way too many black beans for the week (at $.99 a pound dry, i splurged)...

I made the protein portion out of a few scoops to create- bean loaf? beancake?

Black Bean Terrine with Apple Coleslaw

what's inside:
terrine: black beans (some have been pureed with one egg), chopped jalapeno, baked in a small loaf pan
'slaw: apples, cabbage, carrot, cilantro, lime juice, homemade mayo (i had an egg yolk leftover from my frittata the other day and whisked in canola oil, vinegar and salt= mayo!) I just hope Mr. B doesn't see the tape of me playing hookey at the Dodger game... rabbi strawberry?

oh, by the way:There are more food stamp recipients in the U.S. than ever before - 32 million.
