What are we eating?

So, I'm downloading my photos and I find this... The first thought is, "ooh." Then I realized it was just refried beans.

Turns out that Little Man took a picture of it the other day while he was helping Dad with dinner because he thought it looked like a cool torpedo. I am having a hard time believing I ingest anything that starts out looking like this. I was wondering what gives it that firm, gelatin like shape. After reviewing the ingredients I think it must be the lard. Totally unappetizing.


  1. I know the feeling. When I worked in a restaraunt and saw what the brown gravy looked like when it dried I swore I'd never eat it again. It would collect on the metal scoop and at the end of the day and I would have to use a knife to get it off the handle. So gross.

  2. Yuck and I like refried beans :C
