Yes, We're Ready for Some Football...
As far as Stitching on Sunday, I have a knitting project ready to take with me...sz. 35 needles with 4 strands of yarn...spring colors...
As far as Stewing on Sunday, my food assignment was to bring the Beans. I am using my Aunty Vivian's Texas Beans Recipe.
Texas Beans
1 lg. can Bush Baked Beans
1 can Baby Butter Beans
1 can Green Lima Beans
1 can Red Beans
1 can Dark Red KidneyBeans, drained
Saute 1/2 lb. bacon, pour off the fat.
Saute 1 lb. ground beef.
Chop 1 lg. onion.
3/4 cup catsup
1 tbsp. mustard
3 tbsp. molasses
Combine beans, including juice with all other ingredients . Bake at 350, uncovered.

My hubby is stewing today also...he is brewing another batch of beer. This recipe is a Liberty Cream Ale.
