Calico Beans/ Menu/ Pics

Ornaments on my tree.
I found this in Jeffries Antique Mall. (Ohio)
Great Old Butter Churn I have sitting next to my Dough Box in the kitchen.
Large Old Grain Scoop I found in Ohio a couple of weeks ago.
I put the greens and a flicker candle in it.

Recipe for you.
I finished my meal shopping today and wanted to share a recipe with you that tastes great with Ham. It is called Calico Beans and is very easy to make and the smells are wonderful ....and very tastey.
Plus I needed to sit down and take a break.
1/2 lb. ground beef
1/2 lb. bacon
1 c. chopped onion
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
1 t. dry mustard
1 t. salt
2 t. vinegar
1/2 T. garlic salt
1 can pork and beans, drained
1 can kidney beans, drained
1 can lima beans, drained
Cook beef and bacon ( I cook together). Drain well. Mix all ingredients. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. ( I cook 60 minutes)
I doubled the recipe for Christmas and it is the first to go.
My menu is
2 Hams
Calico Beans
Baked Beans
Corn Casserole
Sweet Potatoe Souffle
Parmesan Potatoes
Kraut and Sausage
