Goya, Y'all ...

I love me some international aisle at the grocery store. Mostly because the people in Alabama stare at me (even more than normal) when I get to the checkout line. Once this guy behind me looked at the ginger root I had and asked, "What do you do with that?" I didn't have a good answer so said, "Uhm, stir fry, and sometimes use it in tea." I am not sure if there is a good answer to that question. Or why I even care.

But I did buy this the other night because I wanted to make black beans and I wanted them, dammit, to taste like a small village in Oaxaca. Is that really too much to ask? I mean, beans are GOOD for you and they're economical, but I need them to taste the way I think they should. And the beans in my head taste like a village in Oaxaca and thusly, the beans from my crock-pot should too.

Accessorize your refrigerator with good stuff and I promise your food will taste better.
