Runnerbeans (or not )

I wasn't  sure whether to laugh, cry,  be angry or worry as I walked home after a phone call to Mr Him. I was given some runnerbeans from a colleagues garden.






 I had asked him to prepare some   for my supper. What he told me sent me into a jibbering tailspin on legs.  



Mr Him had only taken the seeds out of the runnerbeans declaring them immature broad beans.  He'd cooked the little red beans and discarded the green outer. 



I despair. I really despair sometimes.

  4. Oh heck! I've just read out your post. My hubby is practically choking from laughing so much! He loves runner beans. I think after the laughing subsides he will truly grasp that good beans have been sacrificed and start bawling his eyes out.

    1. That was my reaction. I imagined them growing then being harvested then my colleague driving them to the office and then Him throwing them away!

  11. Hi Anna! Thanks for stopping over. I don't know your email so I'm replying here. Uber is a car service like a taxi but you handle it all from your phone with an app. So convenient!

    Actually, I don't even know what runner beans are.
