I wanted leftovers for our long weekend, so I made a big dish of these golden, sweet and savory beans tonight. Boston brown bread sounded good, but I was feeling lazy so I just made cornbread this time.
I don't score any points with the kids when I serve this, but sometimes Mommy needs cozy comfort food, too!
