Re: Photo hunt

Took me a bit of digging, but here's it is!

It is a haphazard dish, and everything can be changed according to taste, I often use a combination of canned, fresh, and frozen beans and veggies, but it's up to the chef. Here is how I do it:

-In a large pot, saute a white onion and 3 or 4 cloves of diced garlic in olive oil.
-Add a small can of sliced green chilis.
-Add a chopped chayote squash and chopped green beans, maybe green and red bell pepper (any fresh or frozen veggies, canned veggies later)
-Add freshly ground black peppercorns (it makes a difference!)
-When it's nice and browned and smelling yummy, pour in: 3-5 cans of beans (I usually do red beans, black beans, and sometimes chickpeas), 1 can diced tomatoes, 1 can corn, 1 can tomato paste, any other canned veggies you want.
-Add a dash of salt (more if your canned beans are unsalted or if you used dry beans), a splash of vinegar, a spoonful of sugar.
-Season to taste with: chili powder, cumin, crushed red pepper, cayenne pepper
-If you really want to wow them, though less diabetic friendly, add 1 bottle of beer.

Cook as long as possible over low heat. The leftovers just get better and better as they sit in the fridge.
What I did to make it fit my palette more was remove the sliced green chilis.

Sounds delicious. I don't think I have ever seen a can of chilis in my supermarket but I haven't ever looked for it.




A gate, people, a gate.

I am not sure how famous he is outside of Australia, New Zealand or the Netherlands but this is a statue of Abel Tasman

^I'm assuming the namesake of Tasmania -- I'd say pretty famous, in that sense!

That is correct. He was a 17th century Dutch explorer and was the first European to reach Tasmania and New Zealand and to sight Fiji.

Re: Photo hunt

No-one has photos of shells?

Because it has been a couple of days I will post a photo myself. This is of Shell House, Ballarat which is decorated with thousands of shells. Excuse the strange angle, I was attempting to take a photo to put in a diamond shaped photo frame someone had given me. This photo was taken 32 years ago.



Next up - a pet that isn't a cat or dog.

Sorry to hear that you are having internet problem. Hopefully it will be corrected soon and you can post your photo.

Yes, it is a lovely necklace.

OK, a garden pest. This is a horehound beetle.



Next up - a church.
