    My husband cooked yet another delicous meal involving beans!

    *fry some onions and garlic

    *add red kidney beans and fried them until they began to split a bit

    *Then added marrowfat peas and two cans of chopped tomatoes

    *Add some uncooked macaroni pasta

    *And simmered for a while until the macaroni is cooked

    I think that was it, it was wonderfull on its own but a very hearty meal when served with brown rice.

    I watched Jamie Oliver when I was round my friends house and I was really impressed by the concept of the Ministry of Food resurrection. I then browsed her copy of some of his cook books but I have since found a whole community of cooking blogs and a forum all of which are free to browse, from Jamie. So here’s the link to his site.

    Here we have some of the original books from the second world war which were issues by the Minstry of Food. I hope to post about them at some later date but my husbands family still go and collect mushrooms from the guidlines from them.

    My husband had wanted to make us a nice bowl of something better than just boiled rice and so he tried to fry up some garlic and onion and then put the already cooked rice in but unfortunatly he miss judged how long the rice still had to cook and so he burnt the garlic.

    The rice was hideous – we just couldn’t eat it and Al made him self feel ill trying. It literally tasted of burnt garlic 🙁

    Opps rice

    But he’d made a lot of it and I didn’t want to throw it out so I put it all in a large bowl in the fridge. The next day I bunged it all into a large suacepan and emptied a large jar of pasta suace into it. Put a medium heat on undernieth and then added two spoonfulls of very lazy pre-chopped garlic in white wine vinagar and added 2 tea spoons of rosemerry.

    Once it was hot all the way through I served it with some chicken breast and it was actually quiet nice.

    The only thing I would say about this is that I know there can be issues with reheating rice and so you need to be cuatious.
