Refried Love

Chances are that if I don’t post a picture of my dinner on a given night, I’m eating one thing.


I really, really like refried beans. Specifically, I really like Old El Paso fat-free refried beans. Other brands just don’t do it for me. I guess this started in college. I had a friend named Lindsey who turned me onto the beans. She used to call them “reefers.” (I almost entitled this post “Reefer Love” but decided against that!) I’ve been obsessed ever since. Seriously, ask anyone that’s lived with me. I eat these suckers a lot.

Sometimes I eat them in burritos but usually I just mix them up with some veggies and some salsa.


Today I had some chips on the side, but I don’t always. I also had a dollop of cottage cheese because I was feeling fancy. And also it was about to go bad.

The beans are always mixed with salsa. I don’t like them when they’re not. If I’m eating them as a dip, they can be cold, but if I’m eating them mixed with vegetables or by themselves, they have to be warmed up. I’m not sure why I came up with these bean rules, but that’s the way it goes.

And I wonder why I’m gassy all the time.
