Tackled It On Tuesday : Preparing Hubbys Favorite Meal

I am just a bit late on this one but it was tackled on Tuesday. What was it that I tackled? I tackled making one of my hubbys favorite meals. He does not request it all the time but he does like it and it does bring back memories of being a child. What is it?
1 pound dry great Northern beans

1/2 pound cooked ham, diced

1 small onion, diced

1/2 cup brown sugar

salt and pepper to taste

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 tablespoon dried parsley

Rinse beans in a large pot; discard shriveled beans and any small stones. Add 8 cups of cold water. Let stand overnight or at least 8 hours. Drain and rinse beans. Return beans to pot and add ham, onion, brown sugar, salt, pepper, cayenne and parsley and water to cover. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 1 1/2 to 2 hours, until beans are tender. Add more water if necessary during cooking time.

serve side of it some cornbread and it will taste so delicious. We only make it about once every 3 months as it is something that we enjoy but make so much that once it is gone we want no more for a while.
