Every Friday, we’re mixing things up with a different kind of food writing. More specifically, food poetry to be read slowly, over your morning coffee. Today, the pantry is on a pedestal, once again.

Pantry staples are a thing of beauty. 

We've made this point before, but it bears repeating: simple staples, cooked well, deserve to be described as though they're works of art. Because let's be serious -- as part of a hurried, midweek meal, they totally are. 

In our latest food poem, red beans and rice and rice go from kitschy commercial to terra cotta-colored, beautiful scene, urging us all, if we don't already, to respect our pantries
