You guys! You HAVE to try this wonderful Baked Three Bean Casserole! HAVE TO! You need a potluck dish for a picnic this summer, right? Did you plan on opening a can and heating up some store bought Baked Beans? I HOPE NOT! Not when you could put the tiniest bit of work into it and take Clays Famous Three Bean Casserole! SIDE NOTE – If you are on my mailing list – you may have received an email on 5/12 about this recipe – my fault – I clicked a wrong button in trying to schedule this post. It is now scheduled to post on 5/15. Sorry! 🙂
Clay is the son of a friend of mine – he is about 23 years old – and a truly wonderful person. Like me, he
LOVES to cook. We often have a lot to talk about in that regard. Clay shared this recipe with me saying, “It is so simple and it is REALLY GOOD!”. He is right! We
LOVE simple and delicious! Right? Right!
I tried this dish for a family dinner at Thanksgiving and then again this past weekend for Mother’s Day. There were only enough left over’s for Mark and I to share for dinner last night and sadly, it is all gone now.
The good news? I can make some more in about 10 minutes!! You can too – so try some – TODAY! You probably have everything you need right in your pantry!
On another note, you are probably wondering about other Baked Bean type recipes, right? HERE is a post about some SUPER delicious baked beans that are kicky and spicy with all the secrets of delicious baked beans.
I thought I would include a picture of my Mother’s Day Table here just making a point. This mother’s Day is the first time in a many years that some of my family has sat around the table together. You all know that I often preach about food bringing people together. I’m not just preaching it, I’m living it. I purposefully invited some relatives to dinner who haven’t seen each other in a very long time. Dinner was lovely.
Further, you don’t have to have the best of everything to make this happen. My Mother’s Day Table was set using 4 different table clothes, no matching silverware, no matching glassware, mix/match china (that came from goodwill) and paper napkins. The flowers are from my yard and the vases are an old tea pot and 2 old china cups that say “Mama” on them. It wouldn’t have mattered if we were eating off of paper plates. The point is, we spent some time together connecting. Differing political points of view, differing back grounds and ages spanning the range. We had a great time. You can too.
What was the Mother’s Day Menu? I’ll be happy to share. You come on next time too! I’ll save a seat for you.
