"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
This is one of David's favorite vegetable dishes. I have made it in the middle of the winter when we are in Tucson as the grocery stores carry fresh beans. On the farm Grandpa and Grandma always grew green and yellow beans in the garden. Grandma Shirley would mix the two kinds of beans together and serve at dinner. So good fresh from the garden.
