    Ya are doing good there and I would enjoy sitting down with supper with you, but I hate chicken livers. I think they taste like fried pencil erasers.

    Soup beans and corn bread is the food that I grew up eating 4 nights a week. Still love them!

    Fried pickel corn!:cool: Best thing EVER!!!!

    Hard crust cornbread? Now you are talking!:D Ya got to get that skillet hot with the grease in it and don't do something stupid like pouring it in the batter!;)

    Onions; Hot Wax and Bell peppers goes with the above well I think and does a bunch of fried taters with onions!:cool:

    I like to smash and re-fry mine with a little extra garlic and chili powder, then lay it across a tortilla with some cheeze and hot sauce. Just finished off a pot yesterday. Need to start soaking some more.

    How do you guys cook yours? I rinse, clean, soak overnight. Refresh the water, bring to a boil then simmer until done with an onion, carrot, couple strips of bacon and a few cloves of garlic. Is there a better way?

    I love pinto beans, but I hate the most common things that go with them.......

    BTW, I soak mine over night then put them in the crock pot(early am) on high with a large onion, salt and either bacon or ham scraps. I prefer the ham but sometimes there isn't any in the fridge. I let it cook all day til supper time and they are perfecto! Later that night is when things usually go wrong!

    That's sounds so disappointing...just a quiet little ffffftttt. Not worth much, in my regard.

    I much prefer the BAARRRRUUUUUMMMPPP!!!! from a kettle of beans that weren't soaked overnight, just dumped in a pot with some ham and cooked up for a couple hours.

    I like pinto beans, cooked turnips, greens, cornbread and Ice tea. They go good with sour kraut and corn relish.

    I like to put pinto beans in chili. my wife thinks that I am nuts because she prefers kidney beans.

    I like to cook mine in the crock overnite on low with onion and country ham chunks, skillet cornbread(is there really any other) and fried taters. Hot sauce on the taters, mustard in the beans, boy thats good. But ol' rak has to lay off that stuff, I just had a health screening and my cholesterol is through the roof:eek:

    I can't imagine why ? The Fried Taters might have helped, but Pinto Beans, Onions, Ham, and Corn Bread didn't do that to you. Is it in your family history ? :)

    I cooked a pot all day today...

    Got in late from hunting so they will wait til tomorrow.

    Corn bread, fried potatoes, and some venison cutlets on the grill will do just the trick tomorrow.

    As a kid, we always had the above but pork chops or fried chicken, never much venison. My dad was never very successful hunting and my mom didn't kile venison.

    I like cornbread and a couple spoonfuls of sweet relish in my bowl of beans. Sometimes a shot of hot sauce to get me going. A big cast iron skillet of fried taters and onions or tater cakes are hard to beat as side items.
