    The truth is out there.

    One of my favourite Tim Minchin quotes is "Throughout history, every mystery ever solved has turned out to be... not magic!"
  4. The back story is more along the lines that I was trying to come up with a 'fancy/gourmet' baked beans on toast w/ cheese recipe. I was doing this with breakfast in mind because that's how I enjoy my baked beans on toast w/ cheese. The question was posed because I was wondering how much it would resonate with other people. Haha! Tell me this isn't a romantic meal: Homemade focaccia with Spanish style roast-beans and aged cheese. Most restaurants would charge you $50 for the privilege.
  5. From a can. Will look into whether dried+soaked will be better. Yes and no. I get that it seems odd that beans are all the way down the list of ingredients, but the other stuff really just makes a basic tomato sauce that you cook the beans in. Most of the ingredients are background singers. You could cook the beans in watered-down canned tomato soup instead, but yeah.... Looks good!
  6. I went for something similarly simple (if not simpler): Shallots + garlic + whole canned tomatoes (smashed with a wooden spoon) + tomato paste + brown sugar + smoked paprika + worcester sauce + fresh rosemary + cannellini beans + salt + pepper The biggest thing I learned is that cannellini beans might have too subtle of a flavour. I'm going to experiment with some other beans. Mushroom powder sounds interesting. I'm sure that it would work in a wide range of dishes. Will keep an eye out. [edit]: Also, I reduced everything with the cannellini beans added. It was roughly 45min-1hr, and by that point the beans had perfect texture. Soft and creamy but with a bit of 'bite'.
  7. I made homemade baked beans last week. It was easy and delicious.

    Bee keeping

    The bee community is really tight in Australia. Everyone is always looking out for eachother. Just the other day I bought a dozen bees from a fellow enthusiast, when I got home I counted 13 instead. I called her to correct things and she said "For you, freebee."
  10. Thanks all! Its always been a breakfast dish to me (but like any good breakfast dish it can work for lunch or dinner too), and I was curious whether others saw it the same way.
  11. No joke here. If it's all 3, then can you rank them in order of when baked beans on toast with (melted) cheese is most appropriate?
  12. He goes to the monastery, knocks on the door, and says, “My car broke down. Do you think I could stay the night?” The monks graciously accept him, feed him dinner, even fix his car. As the man tries to fall asleep, he hears a strange sound. The next morning, he asks the monks what the sound was, but they say, “We can’t tell you. You’re not a monk.” The man is disappointed but thanks them anyway and goes about his merry way. Some years later, the same man breaks down in front of the same monastery. The monks accept him, feed him, even fix his car. That night, he hears the same strange noise that he had heard years earlier. The next morning, he asks what it is, but the monks reply, “We can’t tell you. You’re not a monk.” The man says, “All right, all right. I’m dying to know. If the only way I can find out what that sound was is to become a monk, how do I become a monk?” The monks reply, “You must travel the earth and tell us how many blades of grass there are and the exact number of sand pebbles. When you find these numbers, you will become a monk.” The man sets about his task. Forty-five years later, he returns and knocks on the door of the monastery. He says, “I have traveled the earth and have found what you have asked for. There are 145,236,284,232 blades of grass and 231,281,219,999,129,382 sand pebbles on the earth.” The monks reply, “Congratulations. You are now a monk. We shall now show you the way to the sound.” The monks lead the man to a wooden door, where the head monk says, “The sound is right behind that door.” The man reaches for the knob, but the door is locked. He says, “Real funny. May I have the key?” The monks give him the key, and he opens the door. Behind the wooden door is another door made of stone. The man demands the key to the stone door. The monks give him the key, and he opens it, only to find a door made of ruby. He demands another key from the monks, who provide it. Behind that door is another door, this one made of sapphire. So it went until the man had gone through doors of emerald, silver, topaz, and amethyst. Finally, the monks say, “This is the last key to the last door.” The man is relieved to no end. He unlocks the door, turns the knob, and behind that door he is amazed to find the source of that strange sound. But I can’t tell you what it is because you’re not a monk

    Are we ready for war?

    I was tempted to say the same thing, but the more I thought about it the more I realised that it's so far away from the truth its essentially false.
