I decided I needed to post whether what I write is “read worthy” or not.  It’s the act or writing that’s important.  So be warned, you may see some ramblings here!

I was thinking about one of my favorite meals growing up.  Get this- Pinto beans, fried potatoes and cornbread.  Heaven!!

Now there is a Very Specific Way to eat this delightful meal.  First you lay down your bed of fried potatoes, then you spoon on lots of beans, being sure to get plenty of juice.  You put this right on top of the potatoes.  To top it all off, you crumble cornbread all over the whole mess.  Delicious!

The beans, of course were cooked with onions and bacon or Ham Hock.  Yum!  The potatoes fried crisp with onions.  And the corn bread always came out of the oven in one of Mom’s cast iron fry pans; cooked to perfection, a golden brown!

My mom raised 4 of us, mostly by herself.  So money was tight.  Always.  I have 3 brothers that ate like they had hollow legs!  This simple but filling meal was a way to get us all fed and filled up inexpensively.

I Still love this meal!!  You could also make it with those little white Navy Beans.  Oh My!!!  I love those!

I think it time I put a pot of beans on to soak!
