Just got a message that my box is out for delivery!  

I also checked the RG Spoilers Facebook group so I know what's coming 😉

 

Edited to add that I had no sooner posted this, when the mailman rang my doorbell and dropped off my box-o-beans.  It's pouring rain here so both the box and the poor mailman were thoughly soaked!

Arrrgh, I've misplaced the newsletter that came with my beans and it had a recipe on it for cream of mushroom soup with wild rice.  Could someone pretty please take a picture of the recipe and post it for me?  I've looked on the Rancho Gordo site and I don't see the recipe there.

Protip: email customer service and ask nicely, and they'll email you a PDF. (That recipe looks delicious!)

Sounds like MelissaH might already have done this, but I messaged you a photo of the recipe.

The RG customer service people are really top notch and usually very quick to reply.  I suspect they might be swamped right now with people having shipment related issues so it could take a little longer but do touch base with them if you want a full copy of that newsletter.

My bean club box just arrived :).  Very exciting.  

I just got an email that mine is out for delivery. I just got on a plane in Washington DC so I should have a treat welcoming me when I get home!

I won't ruin the surprise...but there is something non-bean in there that I cannot WAIT to try.

 

Huzzah!  I am relieved.  I'm minded of an ancient Goon Show skit [from memory]:  "Sir there are rumblings among the crew down in the hold!"  "Insolent cur, how would you like a taste of the cat?"  "Oh, please, sir!  Anything but more beans!"

I have called a moratorium on further purchases of RG beans until I work my way through the stock I have. I can testify that the cranberry beans, cooked in the IP with nothing but diced onion and a sliced up kielbasa, then drained and stirred up with a sauce of ketchup, barbecue sauce, soy sauce, molasses and spicy brown mustard, makes a wonderful dish of baked beans for any occasion calling for them.

 

I bought some wax beans today at the farmers market. Contemplating cooking up some bits of bags of different beans, draining and chilling, and then mixing with lightly blanched wax beans and green beans in a viniagrette for a bean salad.
