yeah, the lack of car is the issue with the beans.  restrictions?  served
either cold or luke, makeable at home to be brought there.  If it can
reside, warm, in a crockpot, fine.

easy enough that I can do it.  I'm low energy these days.

I'd prefer non-finger food, since that's sort of a bachelor option, in a
way.  I mean, I could do stuffed celery, if I wanted that.  Did a search of
Gode cookery for turnips, rutabagas and cauliflower, came up with very
little.  Was just thinking they'd be good with cheese.

Sis said something about "bread with a brick," but I'm thinking that's not
