Black Beans and ricely yours

to paraphrase Louis Armstrong.
One of the staff favorites a lifetime ago at the late Fiddlehead Restaurant was Black Beans and Rice. There is just something nourishing, refreshing, and wonderful about the combination of black beans simmered with green peppers and onions, some herbs and chilis, flavored with miso, fresh cilantro, sherry and lime juice, and served over brown rice with squeeze of lime, a big dollop of sour cream and guacamole, tomatoes that gives you, to steal another famous saying, the courage to get up and do what needs to be done. Side of lemon dressed green salad, some kiwis, and John was drinking pink wine and I had Shiraz Viognier. Feeling much better, thank you.
