If you're blessed or afflicted with seasonal change (depending on your point of view), what foods, if any, do you prepare during the later months? For us it's something I think we invented, leastways we never heard of it before we first made it years ago. Easy and cheap: •2 cans Butter Beans (not drained, add the water) •2 cans Split Pea w/Bacon (we add only 1 can of water but you might like both) •1 can Cream of Mushroom (no water) Simmer for a few hours until it starts to meld. Add any kind of meat: browned sage sausage is good but so are chopped brats, cubed ham, etc. Pepper and season to taste, top with croutons. Does well accompanied by beer. Like home made chili and soup, it tastes even better the next day. Your turn!
