This isn’t really woodworking, but there’s some wood involved in the presentation.

The other day, a friend of ours requested this recipe of Barb’s Calico Beans.

She always made these when we went on a picnic, or potluck dinner.

We were really impressed by the request, because the person who asked about the recipe

hadn’t been in touch with it for about 20 years, but he still remembered how good it tasted.

I added my touch to this , by furnishing the maple board for the background.

If you try it, we know you’ll love it.

What a good idea. We all have to eat to be able to do woodworking.

I’ll have to try this recipe.

Thanks

I tried to stop eating once – but I fell off the wagon. Beautiful maple. What finish did you use :)

Thanks Dick and Barb,

I typed it up, put it in a sheet cover, and put it in our looseleaf Recipe Book while drinking the first cup of coffee this morning.

Had this for dinner !! Mmmmm! Delicious !!
I added a can of drained green beans also
and threw the whole thing in the crock pot.
It was too hot today to turn on the oven.
Thanks for the dinner idea,
it gave me extra time to mow the lawn : )
