Usually when I make Beans and Cornbread, I buy a bag of pinto beans…go through them for dirt clods….soak them overnight….cook them all day with spices and onion and ham.
This week I decided to make Beans and Cornbread (a weird meal in the summer heat, but I was desperate for some variety), but this time I bought canned Bush’s Brand Pinto Beans. I threw them in a pot with some ham and they were ready in less than the time it takes to make cornbread. (Jiffy boxed brand of course – never made homemade cornbread in my life.) My family loved them and ate them MUCH better than they eat the beans that are a two day process to make. I’m a little insulted.
