A Nice Long Weekend (and another recipe)

I've had a very nice, long, and relaxing weekend.  I got to hang and have a sleepover with 2 of my sisters!!  How fun that was!!  Visited my parents.  Visited the in-laws.  Got some cleaning done.  Watched Star Wars III.  But, mainly, I caught up on my sleep.  So lovely.  It really is amazing how good you can feel when you are well rested.  I highly recommend it.

Course, that was all interrupted by The Squirrel Incident last night.  Some day I may be able to talk about it.  Today is not that day.

On that mysterious note...  Ready for another recipe?  Here's one for greens and beans. 

Greens and Beans 
2 – 3 bunches mixed greens (such as kale, collard, chard, spinach), washed and chopped
1 T. olive oil

1 can veggie broth
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt to taste

2 1/2 c. cooked white beans (about 1 cup raw, soaked and then cooked)
dash cayenne pepper
Heat the oil in a very large pot.  Throw in the chopped greens and cook until slightly wilted.  Add the veggie broth, garlic, and some salt.  Cook until the greens are darkening in color.  Stir in the cooked beans and cayenne pepper.  Simmer for about 1 hour or until the greens are very soft.  Adjust the seasonings.

Does anyone have any special recipe requests?  Have a particular type of food you are wanting to use?

Ooh. How did you like Star Wars III? I'm very curious about the squirrel incident, but I'll give you some time.

I really liked it, but it was a bit (understatement) sad and tragic. Munch is still unsure about what she saw...
