Have you ever been really excited to get something, then let down when it actually turned out to be something else? Yesterday I started preparing a mixed bean salad with a variety of vegetables. After making the salad dressing, I cut up lots of vegetables. It was quiet in the kitchen, a little Zen time as I sliced and diced the fresh produce. Next job was to open a can of bean medley, a fancy name for mixed beans. You've probably heard the expression "open up a can of worms", well I was about to open up a can of beans!
