Country Beans and Ham

It's another busy day here. The washing machine is going, things are drying in the oven, I have beans cooking on the stove and I am making more laundry detergent. Hubby and I are going to watch Mirrors tonight at the theatre. I just LOVE a good scary movie. Hope you all enjoy your Friday.
To make the most divine beans you need to soak your pinto beans overnight in water. When you are ready to cook them rinse them well and fill your pot with water, add your beans and a ham bone (save those ham bones, they make yummy soups and stews) bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer several hours until your beans are tender and soup is thick. This is the most economical meal I know of..........but one of the tastiest.
Shredded laundry looks like cheese :)

Hi Jill' I love your blog; Thanks for visiting mine and leaving such a nice comment; the bully babies would love to come visit you sometime, but whoo are they a handful! I can just imagine your two and my four; they would have so much fun! I don't know about your babies, but mine are often a little gassy and the snoring! Well I am used to it and I know each one's sound; it will wake me up at night if I don't hear ALL the different snores! I am adding you to my list, but yesterday I was having fits with the internet! So hopefully today! Merrie

Yum that sounds so good and comforting. Love the comfort food.

Don't eat that cheese. LOL I think you'd be blowing bubbles if you ate it.

I'm not a fan of bean soup but my husband sure I'll have to show him SIL makes the soup and DH loves it.
Have a great day.
