Tonight is our Church "Eat and Pray" at our house. The menu is BBQ Meatballs, a great Bean Dish, Pasta and Tossed Salads, Rolls and Dessert. Doesn't that sound good!
Well, this afternoon, I started my easy bean recipe and had quite a big surprise. I bought two cans of "Butter Beans" and when I opened the cans I had "Whole Potatoes"...Not even close! Good thing I started the beans early, as I had time to return them to the store. On top of that, my receipt showed they charged me for "Lima Beans"...
So back to the store I go with the two opened cans of potatoes, hoping the Customer Service people have a sense of humor. I was afraid to buy the same brand, for fear I'd get potatoes. They think the whole shipment may be wrong. So the good news...the only other "Butter Beans" they had was a gourmet brand costing 3 times as much as the Safeway brand. They said, no problem, no charge, so we are having "Gourmet Baked Beans" tonight.
