"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
When I make this, I usually start from left over pot roast instead of the meat and water. If you start from the same, just put in the pot everything that you have left from the potroast. The liquid, meat, potatoes and vegetables. Just add enough water for the beans and begin the process. This makes a really good base to start from.
