Personal Notes:
My aversion to beans of every kind was a constant sorrow to my mother. Each year I tried the obligatory bean, with a taste of bean juice. To no avail. I couldn't even eat a black-eyed pea on New Year's Day for good luck. As I look back, I don't know if she used rice with her chili just because of me. The chili recipe is written in her hand, in an old cookbook, so I think the rice was always used, but I'm not sure.
