Cold Weather Meal :::: Ham and Beans with Cornbread

Ham and beans in the winter is a welcome dish. While I understand that not everyone enjoys it like I do so we have to fix a ham along with the ham and beans at our house. SO our menu goes like this
ham and beans
ham and cheese sandwiches
fried potatoes
