12/23/2003 Black Beans with Bacon and Brazilian Passion Fruit Mousse (Maracuja)
Today's Diversity Committee Recipe is in honor of Watson Cataloging's superstar
Gail Krotky and her exciting upcoming trip to South America (more specifically,
Brazil!). We will miss you Gail!
The first recipe is more of a sidedish, but can be made into a main dish by adding some rice! Vegetarians/Vegans can remove the bacon and have a yummy variation on black beans and rice!
The second recipe is for "very few ingredients" dessert for those who do not like overly sweet treats.
