....mmmmmm, lovin' the beans!!!

I cook from scratch quite a bit, and "discovered" this one day when cooking a pot of white beans for supper. I cooked the dried beans in water with a bit of salt and 8-10 fresh sage leaves, and a couple cloves of garlic. When the beans were done, I scooped a 1/2 cup of the drained beans for myself - I drizzled 1/2 teaspoon really good olive oil over it (and was sure to grab a cooked sage leaf too)...It might sound plain, but the distinct flavors were incredible! I also tried a basil olive oil once, and was blown away! Just the littlest bit of oil permeated the beans with flavor!

(I REALLY want to visit the Tuscany region)...someday...
