Thanks Richie. When I was younger i was lucky enough to travel and i learned that ever geographic area has a bean. LOL Sounds stupid huh? Well its true. You can get a good estimation of where you live or where you have lived by your beans...... You know I have too much time on my hands now, right?
I keep red beans, navy beans, great northern, black beans, pinto beans, lima beans (all three sizes), Blackeye'd peas, etc... ya know they all can be cooked with hocks! In the NE, there is a lot of bean soup and baked beans and waxed beans.
My Pop being from Texas.... his choice is always pinto's, So it'll be pinto's & hocks, smothered taters, maybe some fresh cabbage or brocolli, and corn bread! Now that's a great meal.
Thank you Dave, I have smelled 'em all morning. I always wondered if that is why some foods like beans are so good, after smelling them all day, its hard not to drool at supper time when the pot hits the table.
