Sweet Potato and Black Bean Hash

Crash Test Vegetarian

A long, long time ago (The song “American Pie” comes to mind),  I made Black Bean and Soyrizo hash and heard of other people using different things like kale and sweet potatoes so I was on a mission to make another – just as easy – version.  Things didn’t work out, exactly as planned.  I spent a week looking for Kale at my local supermarkets and produce stand, and I have yet to find any.   My husband didn’t care for this recipe, cause he’s not a sweet potato fan, and after accidentally mixing stuff up on my plate, I decided that the best way for me to enjoy this was topping my favorite salad greens and drizzled with the cilantro-lime dressing I also tried that also failed the hubby test.

So the instructions include the sweet potato – if that’s your thing, but I highly suggest making a big…

Secular Morality

When the World’s oil was threatened under President Eisenhower’s watch, he did not resort to using military force. He set an example of non-interventionism, and helped to ensure a free World Market for years to come.

Here is a brief summary of one of the World’s first oil crises:

Britain and the United States initially offered to fund the building of the Aswan Dam, but they withdrew their offer as a response to the growing relationship between Egypt and the Soviets. Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser reacted by nationalizing the Suez Canal on July 26th 1956. About 1.5 million barrels of oil a day were transited through the Suez Canal, and about 1.2 million of them were destined for Western Europe, making it an essential part of the global economy. On August 2nd Britain made the decision to mobilize troops, and the USSR responded by sending Soviet ship-pilots to…

Vridar

Is the sun a ball of dung?

The ancient Egyptians believed that Kephri, a god with the head of a sacred scarab, pushed the sun along its path, just as the dung beetle pushes a ball of dung across the ground. They were convinced that the beetle existed in male form only, and reproduced by fertilizing its dung ball with beetle semen. This life-giving attribute relates to Kephri’s ability to resurrect the sun each morning.

The irrational anti-supernaturalist would dismiss these beliefs out of hand, while the credulous, unlearned person might simply accept them without question.

A Poem for Mary (Magdalen)

 

As he passed through Magdala

His followers trailing in the dust

She spotted him and  said to herself,

“that Rabbi carpenter is a hot one.”

Off she went  to have her ‘demons’

cleansed. He sure knew how to do that,

among other things, and he made her laugh,

and made her cry out, “Oh, Jesus!”

in the night.
