Beans and rice smell amazing...for about 3 hours...then the smell starts to really irritate you. Like a day old diaper in the trash can.
Why did my kitchen smell like B & R since 9am you ask? I'm making B & R for about 30 people tonight at church for a Missions Forum. We're being diabolical with it...each attendee will get one scoop of B&R, 2 fried corn tortillas, and water. That's it! Mwa ha ha! The reason for the skimpy eats is to help them understand that not everyone get's to eat as much as they want...also, our missionary friend's in Nicaragua basically eat B&R twice a day nearly every day.
You get what you get and you don't throw a fit!
