I am having a hard time with the weather in Portland. Okay, I've said it. And I've got many months to go before it warms up.

So... I've started making food that pretends it is Springtime. Today I infused white beans with light olive oil and fresh tyme and sage, simmered for an hour and added my canned tomatoes from the summer. Aromatic, delicate, and just right for a balmy evening in the Northwest.
