Being - less good
Frigid temps. Blowing snow. More lake effect accumulations over the next couple of day. Nights in the negs.
Brrrr. So I decided to make up some bean soup.
As usual, I never just dump a bag of beans into a pot. I sort them for debris, etc.
Good thing. Look at this bag of "15 bean soup" from Hurst's HamBeens brand. As you can see, there are little 'somethings' in the mix. A closeup of the garbonzo beans show they are infested with some kind of eggs. Yuk!
I've sent off an email to the company and discarded the whole bag of beans. I'll let you know if they get back to me. Good thing I had my reading glasses on. *sigh*
Well, after running off for blood work this morning through unplowed icy streets, then clearing off the driveway, and then the disappointment of the beans, I admit I've succumbed to temptation.
So sue me.... :-D Thank gods for chocolate!
The Hurst people have replied within 24 hrs of my email, apologized sincerely for the bad batch and are sending me a 'care package' for my trouble. I'm pleased no end that a company I've bought from for so many years didn't just brush off a valid concern. More HamBeens in my future for sure. :-D
