Beans, Beans the Magical Fruit
Will I in fact do anything the food section of the NYT Sunday Magazine tells me to? All signs point to "yes." Today I ordered five different kinds of heirloom beans from a grower in Napa Valley for no better reason than the NYTSM made it seem like a good idea. More than that: I became instantly certain that beans are my future, my new staple of choice, the Answer to Everything. Never mind that I'm the only one in my family who likes beans, that I've had them before, that they are in fact just *beans*. The food section of the NYTSM has spoken; I have obeyed.
