Those of us that live under the eternal warmth and comfort of the southern sun have few concerns beyond this, we live surrounded by the sea and endure her occasional petulance.
Six hours to landfall and Ivan rages toward the coast. The third major hurricane this season now threatens the "catcher's mitt" from New Orleans to Tallahassee. Two hundred miles west, out in the Gulf, Ivan kicks up our surf and sends us his warning, "Please be safe from me and when the storm has passed return to this extraordinary place in which you have chosen to live."
Two southern comfort recipes to come home to;
Cuban Sandwich and...
Black Bean Soup
1 16 oz can black beans
1/3 cup dices fresh onion
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp lemon juice
Mix all the ingredients in a pot and bring to boil covered. Remove from the heat, stir and serve.
