Celebrate Beans In Calico Beans

Yeah!!! Bean Monday, that's right I am not sure why but today is the national holiday to celebrate beans. I am curious as to why the day that many of us eat beans is not the bean holiday??? But beans are so versatile there are so many dishes that can be made from them that I think the bean holiday is sort of awesome. This is one of the recipes I grew up with it was one of my moms favorite bean recipes we had it at home several times, she would take it to potlucks and picnics and the best thing is that it was and still is very affordable recipe.
