Fava Beans

I'm a pretty adventurous eater.  I love Brussel Sprouts, Beets and Okra.   I've tried Sweatbread, Kidney, Tripe,  Liver, Gizard, and Heart without flinching.  I've caught, killed, filleted and eaten raw fish while still on the boat.  Truly, the stinkier the cheese the better.  So it's a bit perplexing that last night I hit a snag when I opened a can of Fava Beans and nearly flinched from eating them.

My brain was bouncing wildly from 'June Bug' to 'Moose Turd' as I stared down at the brown legumes.  I forced myself to eat them but the thoughts kept racing in my head.  Even today when I went to grab some lunch I tried the leftovers and the same thing happened.  It's just a big fucking bean!
