Tuesday: Beans and Bacon

I made this to satisfy a craving I had for beans. Of course with beans one "must" add bacon, so the dish got some bacon too.

Cook presoaked beans, a chopped onion, some cumin seeds, and a bay leaf in enough water to cover by 2cm for about an hour. Brown some diced bacon in a separate pan and add it to the beans along with some minced garlic. Continue to cook until the beans are tender. Serve with hot sauce.

We also had rice (parboiled/wild rice mixture toasted in olive oil and then cooked in chicken bouillon) and some chard stems (diced and cooked in the rendered bacon fat) as a side vegetable.

Oh, and a green salad.
