Errrrrr.... it was the dawg!!!
I have always wanted to try my hand at cooking beans. 100 years ago my wife cooked some and they were awesome. The beans were harder than bullets and had to be soaked for a day before they were cooked. As they cooked, they drove us crazy because they smelled so good.
1000 years ago my mom made white navy beans, boiled cabbage, and ham... and I nearly hurled. It made my folks so damned mad they made my choke it down and if I puked Pop would give me the belt. Years later my Mom bemoaned hoe her mother forced her to eat turnips and how it was so disgusting... and I silently observed that it served the old bitch right! HAR HAR HAR! I guess it’s part of growing up, being forced to eat shit you’d rather not...
Any recipes you can recommend are sincerely appreciated... as long as they aren’t too difficult!
