Homecoming Beans OAMC

"An excellent pot luck or OAMC recipe that I got from a friend at a pot luck dinner several years ago. Serves 25 or more and freezes well. Good served as a side dish with hamburgers, meat loaf, pork chops or hot dogs. A nice combination of green beans, wax beans, lima beans, and pork and beans. Substitute rinsed and drained chick peas or garbanzo beans or any other beans you like. Add some crispy bacon bits to the casserole or serve bacon bits and grated cheddar cheese to top individual servings."

  1. This was one of the few recipes I made using canned green beans, not to mention Lima beans, that I thoroughly enjoyed! Followed your recipe right on down then divided it, half to freeze & the other half to share at a neighborhood gathering! Great flavor combo & a nice keeper of a recipe! Thanks for posting it!

<p>My favorite thing to do is to spend time with family and friends,&nbsp;especially my two grandsons. Cooking, collecting recipe books and tried and true recipes from family and friends, and all the wonderful cooks here at food.com, is what I enjoy too.</p> <p>My favorite sayings are: &nbsp;Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, and Today is a gift; that is why it is called the 'present'. <img title=Smile src=/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-smile.gif border=0 alt=Smile />&nbsp; and&nbsp;&nbsp;Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live for today. <img title=Smile src=/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-smile.gif border=0 alt=Smile />&nbsp;</p> <p>My favorite poem is: <br /><span>Common Things <br /></span>The things I prize of greatest worth, <br />Are just the common things of earth; <br />the rain, the sun, the grass, the trees; <br />The flowers, the birds, the glorious breeze; <br />Clouds that pass, and stars that shine, <br />Mountains, valleys, all are mine; <br />Rivers broad, and open sea <br />Are riches none can take from me. <br />Our God is here on every hand, <br />Upon the sea, upon the land! <br />And day by day my thanks I give <br />That with these common things I live. <br />....Praying Hands</p> <p>My pet peeve is people who spit gum on the sidewalk even if there is a trash bin a few feet away!! I have stepped in 'fresh' gum a couple of times!!&nbsp;</p> <p><img src=http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r317/j_welcome/pics2/food/PRMRcopy.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/Other/tagforpage1.jpg alt=/ /></p>
