Back home from Chicago, I'm greeted with a completely different kind of cold. Not as extreme and easily tamed by a good breakfast, I love traveling but I'm happy to be home. These are our Midnight black beans, cooked in an evening without soaking, in a clay pot. This morning I heated them up with a healthy blob of sour cream and enjoyed them with a blue corn tortilla. I may be nuts but I think the blue corn torillas have an almost clove-like flavor. Not overwhelming but a perfect match to the black beans.
