Twitter Changes: So I’ve decided to shutdown the autoblogging of my Tweets (Twitter) to my blog. They started to seem messy (and annoying). I had them turned on so that I would have a permanent archive of them (I don’t know if Twitter lets you download your history). I may turn them back on in the future (I’m taking suggestions if anyone has them, did they seem messy to you?).

WordPress Info: I found a great check list for anyone setting up a WordPress blog here

Busy Beans

Saturday, December 8th, 2007

I’m trying to get on the blogging band wagon again. I’ve recently discovered Twitter and am actually liking it quite a bit. It’s kinda like blogging lite. No large commitment, quick snippets from (im, sms, email, widgets, or web) It’s kinda fun, and I’ve found a way to plug them into my blog.

In other news, I’ve been trying to cook more at home, tonight I experimented with a can of beans and ended up with this:


  • black beans (1 can, 1/2 juice replaced with water)
  • sausage (1-2, chopped)
  • onion (1/2, red, chopped)
  • garlic (4-5 cloves, chopped)
  • jalapeno (1, deseeded, sliced)
  • olive oil (a few tbs)
  • butter (1 pad, chopped)
  • salt and spices
  • red wine
  • rice (2 cups, cooked)


  1. Heat the (oil) over (medium) in a pot.
  2. Toss in the (sausage), brown it a bit (5 min).
  3. Toss in the (onion), (garlic), and 1/2 the (jalapeno), cook till translucent.
  4. Pour in a splash of (red wine), cook for a few more min.
  5. Toss in the (beans), (jalapeno), and (butter), add water if needed.
  6. Simmer for (2 hours), add (salt) and (spices) to taste, maybe another splash of (wine).
  7. Serve over rice.

It really turned out great, warms the insides and has that home comfort food feeling.

I’m heading off to breakfast tomorrow with Si, may check up on Morgan (she caught the cold that has been going around) and then Bob in the afternoon (who just got over the cold).
