Yesterday, everyone was at home and my girls asked for Corn and bean meal. I cook this with sweet corn and we enjoy it. don't know why yesterday I
didn't feel like using sweet corn. I sent for a mudu of corn from the market, which they helped me wash and put on the fire.
After about 20 minutes, I washed the brown beans and added. Tried to take pictures so I can share but the camera was giving colors I didn't understand. I guess my kids must have played with the settings of that camera. Anyway, I dropped the camera and continued cooking. All ingredients added. The
beans got so soft it turned into mud. After two and half hours, it occurred to me that even when I cooked cowleg in an ordinary cooking pot, it didn't take that long to cook. The soft beans were beginning to stick to the bottom of the pot and get burnt. Even with water in the pot, the kitchen started smelling of burnt food. I had to turn off the heat and tell everyone the pot got burnt.
Well, I promised to cook with sweet corn today, but, I don't think that will be possible. I felt so bad that I didn't instruct they buy fresh corn. They bought dry corn, washed and placed on the cooker before I came and added the beans.
