I have something wrong with me

OK I have to tell this story, some of you have heard it and some of you have lived it. YEARS ago and I mean years ago back in a small town in Pennsylvania, I was introduced to a food group that I was not to keen on.. ANY one of you guess what it is??? anyway as I was always taught that you eat what is on your plate. NO matter how BAD it is or what it tasted like. Well mine tasted like PASTE. yes PASTE.. oh come on now you all know what it tastes like because you all did it when you were in kindergarden or 1st grade. the good old WHITE school house paste. Well this is what It tasted like to me. PASTE. Well as life has gotten better for me I still have a hard time fixing PASTE. If you have not guessed it by now I am talking about Refried Beans. For many years I have not eatten them because it brings me back to that paste taste. and I have blogged about it before that I have started to like them. Well tonight as I was opening the cans of them for our dinner I found myself eatting them cold and out of the can... YES sick I know but I did it. the worst part is that when I was eatting my dinner I found myself eatting more of them than I would like to admit. And then I saw myself eatting them as I was putting them away after dinner and thinking to my self... "Self" because that is what I call myself. "Self" do you remember when you hated them. and thinking.. there must be something wrong with you. SO yes I will admit now I have something wrong with me.

Scott, try mixing your refried beans with either beef or chicken broth. That thins them a little and gives them more of a restaurant texture and taste.
