Pinto Beans and Sausage

This cold weather is perfect for a huge mess of pinto beans and sausage. Cornbread with same is a given, I mean, duh.

I'm sure we all have our own recipe for this simple dish, but you haven't try,

This one.

And for goodness sake, try and find a good sausage.

Enjoy.

  1. The best sausage is definitely the key to success, but you rarely find that in national brands. I've found local, smoked sausages best and the best of those requires a one hour trip to a market in Iowa, Louisiana.

    1. A one hour trip??? Ah, man, that sucks. Yes, the key is the sausage. I'm lucky we have a local supply of fine sausage here by the brand name of Nettles, and a few other lines of meat that are excellent in both flavor and texture. Thanks, my good friend.

  2. That looks good. Best sausage in these parts is locally produced, with a fair amount of reindeer blended with the other, more traditional ingredients.

    1. Duke, oh buddy of mine, you know where I live. You know when I shut down this shop. You're my bestest friend in the world, and you know you are always welcome at my dinner table, or work bench in the garage....

      Senior, same goes for you. Bring the little ones.

  5. Sausage is king for any good meal. Here in MN you can find beef, pork, elk, buffalo, and other kids meat used in sausage. Enjoy feels like summer here today. 29 above.

    3. Nice way of putting it...I watched it drop. I have a Scottrade screen on my computer and it was interesting, the drop. I want it to drop further as we're (the wife and me) waiting to reinvest in a few dividend paying stocks. Thanks, Rob.

  6. I made ham soup tonight, with potatoes and peas. It was pretty good and hit the spot for this freezing cold weather. 2 above at sunrise and never got near above freezing.
