Beanz meanz

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

The cats have insisted that I post tonight's blog.

Beanz is on my mind, because I find myself eating more of them. I've always considered legumes in general to be friendly sorts of things, something that fills you without having too many calories. Now I find I'm eating them more and more often. They bulk out meat or veg, they fill you up, they are, above all, cheap. There's a story by John Steinbeck in which a lady of questionable virtue brings up a large family singlehanded on beanz. Her view is that you can't go wrong with beanz. I started a message board thread a while back headed 'What food do you find you rely on a lot' and my own answer, which went on first was 'beanz'.

I am getting to the point, SparkFriend mine. Wait for it.

The point is, we all know what beanz meanz and it's not Heinz. Beanz meanz . . . Well, we know what beanz meanz, don't we? And If I say what, I'll be in trouble with the nice-minded Spark People.

But the problem is my cats dislike sudden loud noises and whenever I eat beanz for dinner, sudden loud noises are what they get. I ate beanz at lunchtime and more beanz for dinner and the cats are now outside in the garden sulking because they can't take the stress of an explosive housepest like me. The fact that I dare not feed them sardines because of the obnoxious effluvium they generate when they digest said sardines butters no parsnips with the cats.

Anyone got a cure for what beanz meanz?

    If you could just train the beanz to take the upward course, you could politely belch/burp. Loved your blog. Audra

    emoticon Great blog hun! I have no miracle remedy unfortunately - my partner can tell you 'I love beans' (my catchphrase) and just has to put up with any after effects! emoticon

    You are deliciously amusing as always!
    Beano can help as can soaking the beans, draining well and rinsing well.

    Many years ago (dear friends), my husband and I were away at a campsite at the time of his birthday. We ate and drank far too merrily at lunchtime, and had to have an afternoon nap! After this, feeling a little jaded, we went for a short walk. When we stopped to take a breath, an elderly couple with a small Scottie dog came over to talk to us. Unfortunately, the effects of several pints of local ale, had on my digestive system, the same as beanz on yours, although I carefully tried to disguise it. We were surprised therefore, when the elderly couple, much embarrassed, apologised for the smell their dog was making, and threatened to feed it on charcoal biscuits when they got it home!! So the answer to your problem my dear, is charcoal biscuits.

    Now that I've picked myself up off the floor from laughing.....some folks have said that Beano works. Never tried it so It can't say.
