A pot of plain old pinto beans is hard to beat on a cold day. Soak them overnight, drain, add fresh water to cover with a couple of inches over that. Add a smoked ham hock, a quartered onion, a chopped rib of celery. Bring to a boil, then simmer for several hours, until the water cooks down to a sauce. Add salt when beans are tender. Serve with cornbread or fresh sourdough bread for dipping, er actually, for sopping. They're just as good or maybe even better when reheated the next day.

Mmmm....love beans just about any way, especially like a few of you mentioned - slow cooked with a smoked ham hock.

This isn't really a 'recipe', but I do love black beans rinsed and drained well, and sprinkled over green salads. Our summers are so hot here in the desert and I feel like I'm getting that extra bit of protein when I don't feel like cooking.

They're good with a variety of salad dressings and keep well in the fridge for several days. I just had a mixed greens salad tonight with a couple good spoonfuls of black beans mixed in, with a vinaigrette dressing - delish.

I like Shake 'em Up Salads. Mexican-style is one of my favorites, the other is chick peas with Italian-type salad dressing or Greek-salad dressing.

I love three or four-bean salad on a hot summer day.

ingredients:
1 12 oz. can dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 12 oz. can garbanzo beans (chicke peas) drained and rinced
1 12 oz. can green beans with can liquor
1 12 oz. can Wax beans with can liquor
1.8 cup apple cider vnager
t tsp. celery seed
1 meium yellow onion, peeled and chopped
sugar to taste

Chill until ice-cold and serve. Yum!

Yes, I know, everything is from a can. When it's hot outside, and inside, I'm not going to take the time and effort to boil kidney and garbanzo beans until tender, and then steam fresh green and wax beans to perfection. I don't care how much you threaten me. I'm not going to do it, I tell ya. I'm not going to do it. No! Get that funny white jacket with the sleeves that tie around the back out of here. I'm not goin' down easy, see. No, get away! Get away!.

Ok, so that was lame. What else ya gonna do on a lazy Sunday afternoon when you're sitting in the office because you're waiting for a telephone company to call you abck, because one of your customers sites is without phone service?"

This isn't lame: Sweet Bean Pie:

Ingredients, Crust;
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
lard
3 tbs ice water

Whisk together the flour and salt. Cut in 3/8 cup of lard until completely cut it. Does the dough look like pea-gravel yet. if there is loose flour in the bowl, add another heaping tbs. or so of lard and cut it in. On the other hand, if the dough looks like it will all stick together like a lump of greasy clay, add another 18 cup of flour and cut it in. You want it to look like pea gravel.

When the dough is just right, add the ice water and fold it in just to moisten everything a bit. now, roll it out on a well floured work surface and fold it in half, then in half again to form a triangle. Carefully lift the dough into a pie pan, with the pointy end in the middle of the pan, and unfold The dough to fit the pan. Press down lightly. Preheat oven to 400' F. Beat an egg until smooth, and brush the pie shell with the beaten egg. Place in the hot oven for 7 to eight minutes, just to set the egg wash. Remove and let the crust cool.

Filling ingredients:
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup evaporated milk
2 cups cooked (or canned) and mashed navy beans
2/3 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground clove

Preheat oven to 425'F.
Combine all ingredients and whisk until smooth. When the oven is hot. pour the filling into the pie shell and place in the oven. Cook for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350' and bake for another 50 minutes. Test by inserting a clean butter knife. If it comes out clean, the pie is done. Cool to room temperature, or place in the fridge if you like your pie cold, like me.

Serve with your favorite pumpkin pie topping, because that's what this pie tastes, and feels like.

Chief Longwind, they'd have to haul me away in the straight jacket right along with ya, because I love, love, love 4 bean salads made with canned beans! I make mine very similar to yours. Now I'm craving it. Must make it again very soon.

Your sweet bean pie sounds wonderful, I'm going to copy and paste it to my 'to try' recipes.

This 4 bean salad was from last summer - I added some chopped red pepper, celery, and Bermuda onions, as I had to use them.
