Ok, they smelled like dead body, and mold experiment gone wring. Like foul, bloody things that come out the wrong end of a *really* sick dog.
Beans should not smell like that. Certainly not after only a day or so. Not good.
I'm thinking I may need to bleach the crock pot of doomy-ness. Which is going to be kinda involved, 'cause I don't own bleach.
"What?" I hear you wondering, in your cubes and whatnot. "How does anyone *not* own bleach??!"
Easy. I don't eat meat, so I don't cook with it. The RMs don't cook at all, other than the odd box of mac and cheese or frozen chicken nuggets. Without raw-meat-cooking in the kitchen, I really don't need to bleach the cutting board (or anything else) like... ever.
"But what about laundry??! How do you keep your whites white???!" (wow, you guys are really excitable this morning...)
Um... I think I own a total of five white items. One is a towel. One is a pair of socks (that might not be technically "white", but rather "natural") and the third through fifth are a bra, hand wash-only shirt, and a tank top of the wife-beater variety. Not a lot of call for bleach at chez j.
Now, chlorine-neutralizing laundry detergent to keep my blacks blacker and my greys the same shade of grey they were when I bought them? Yep, plenty of call for that stuff. Not so much with the white, though. (pretty sure the RMs would be unhappy if I re-blacked my clothes in the communal washing machine with grape juice and black dye...)
Back to food.
So the black beans will be going to a new and smellier home, just as soon as I can get them out of the kitchen and double bag them and toss them and whatnot.
Instead of the beans, it was another carb-o-rific kinda day. Finished the bread rolls, made a flour nugget-thing, finished the EB and sour supreme... Oh, and I had the *very last* tea bag of the tasty vanilla chai stuff. Without any kinda milky/ creamy stuff it was kinda bitter at the end, and I'm suspecting that 4 teaspoons of sugar was maybe a bit of overkill, but not bad.
Note: 4 teaspoons of sugar may make your blood sugar peak, then tank. Leading to shaking, wobbling, and overall unhealthy floppyness. Do Not Want. Next time will try to balance sugar high with protein. Not as much fun, but less fally-down-ness later.
