It doesn't seem weird to me to eat beans for dessert.  But I'm pretty sure it's because I'm Asian.  Asians really like their dessert beans.  (Except the boyfriend.  He doesn't fancy bean desserts.  He's so weird.)  Asians even like dessert beans for breakfast.  Especially in red and green.  Sounds, festive right? Another fun fact:  Asians [...]

New Month: February
