Power Outage Food

Our power was off all day Saturday. We never figured out why. The power company said the outage only affected 138 customers.

The fridge was full of newly bought fish and milk and delicate local green things, so we had to be extra careful not to open it. And we couldn't use any electricity, of course. So once we tired of fruit, I made beans vinaigrette: a can of black beans with olive oil, vinegar, lots of black pepper, and the first garden herbs of the year, some chives that poked up the week before. It was pretty good. I might make it again even with the power back on.
