Unpublishing: open sharing of half-baked assertions
From my particular window on Digital Humanities, I have watched something coming for some time and now, at the Ong Center for Digital Humanities, it is upon us. The best case scenario for shared and reusable scholarship includes research notes, work-in-prog...

I'm pretty sure my chickens believe in Santa Claus. I'm also pretty sure there is no chicken Santa Claus (despite this evidence found online).

Just listening to this song and thinking about the Mars landing. I know that  if Yusuf put up a Kickstarter, I'd give an inordinate amount of money to it.

So here's the delicious beans I had tonight. I know that a photo is customary, so I stole one (from http://ellysaysopa.com/2011/03/21/meatless-monday-gigantes-plaki-greek-baked-bean-casserole/).

This also comes canned in ethnic grocers as Greek Baked beans or -Gigantes or Baked Giant Beans.

It starts with large beans (Giant Beans is a real thing, but butter beans or large limas work). Two small cans drained serves about 6 as a main dish. Add to a baking dish (cast iron or earthenware FTW) and put in one large onion, a few cloves of garlic, about a half cup of tomato juice or V8, almost a cup of good dressing olive oil, a bunch of chopped fresh parsley, and salt and pepper. Stir, and bake at 350° for about an hour.

Enhancements!
* The original recipe I used called for 4 ripe tomatoes (probably roma), seeded and put through a food mill. Try it if you are feeling fancy.
* The photo I had in my Greek cookbook also had some long thin chiles and a couple bay leaves on top, so I added it and it was worth it.
* Many other places add in lots of other items like carrots, radishes, squash, beets, and all sorts herbs (tarragon, Greek oregano, thyme). I like that this is simple, so I wouldn't. In fact, I don't even have onion in mine - beans, garlic, oil, tomato juice.
* If you can get Giant Beans (γιγαντes) - they are magic and worth it.
