the fava beans that wouldn't die

I soaked some small fava beans and cooked them in Ming's crockpot for 10 hours.  Do you think I'm exaggerating?  I'm not.  And they still weren't all the way soft.  I looked through the plastic see-through lid.  Yes, the beans were simmering.  Good flavor, bad texture.

So I haven't eaten them much, but I thought I'd try to finish them today.  I cooked a tomato, heated them in the microwave, added a clove of raw pressed garlic, some olive oil.  It's much deliciouser this way.

My cousin never called, and I hope he's okay.

Handwashed my green dollar store scarf to keep wet around my neck during our long hot drive Tuesday morning.
