My blog is named for Mehitable Day, a woman buried in the 1800s behind the Maine farmhouse where I lived as a teenager. Whenever I'd have a day that was especially challenging, eventful, or just plain odd, I'd tell my friends, "I've just had the most Mehitable Day!" And so this blog is where I share the events, discoveries and random musings
of my Mehitable Days. :-)

A lone grave marker in Sheridan's Municipal Cemetery. I could find no other markers
in the vicinity of this grave with the rest of this person's name or vital statistics,
nor evidence of missing stones. Maybe George was secretive and wanted it that way!

Scrumptious Skillet Supper...
I had to break a cardinal rule of food photography and photograph this
under icky artificial light (on the sad little stove in our last rental). Sorry!
The original name of this dish is Skillet Black Beans with Potatoes and Tortillas, but we simply call it "that yummy skillet supper." :-) With potatoes, corn tortillas, beans and spices, this satisfying dish has become one of our new comfort foods. It makes a lot (use a large skillet!), and makes great leftovers.
Click here for this delicious recipe by Nava Atlas. The only changes we make to this recipe is that we sauté in water instead of oil, and add a poblano pepper and about 1/4 cup of frozen organic corn. (We like ours with 3 cloves of garlic and 2 chipotle peppers, but adjust these amounts according to your own heat preferences).
Here it is all served up garnished with fresh cilantro, avocado, homemade vegan sour cream, and a splash of Sriracha hot sauce, since we like our sustenance on the spicy side!...
