Crockpot Beans with Ham

crockpot beans with hamLast week we had some very nice, warm weather in the valley.  Monday it chilled down considerably and I got to thinking about warming up with some beans-n-ham-n-cornbread.  That’s how we say it in our house, like it’s all one word.  We even have a little song I used to sing when Boo and Bud were younger (you’ll have to set your own tune because I’m not singing it, LOL) Beans -n- ham -n- cornbread, doo, doo.  Beans – n- ham -n- cornbread, doo, doo.

Anyway, it’s an easy recipe, but yummy and tummy-filling and very inexpensive.

  1. Would love your opinion about my blog on my blogiversary. It’s such an important event for a blogger. I can’t cook with white beans… I don’t know what it is… black beans for me! But I love beans lately.
