    Do like me some beans and cornbread. Especially as the weather is starting to cool off.

    Add a good hot bowl of greens and I’m on board… Mustard, collard, turnip greens (and you’ll have to go aways to beat the ones that Glory cans up as well).

    I must still be a country oh at heart…

    we were raised in a single parent home and i was the oldest, so i cooked a lot of beans. Mom would say that by the time i was grown, i'd hate beans. she was wrong. i like em all. favorites are little red kidneys and pintos. rice with the reds and cornbread with the pintos.

    My Dad used to make a navy bean soup (a really thick one) that was simmered slowly for hours with a smoked ham hock... You could live on that with a bit of diced onion or green onion on top and a piece of cornbread.... He was born in Town Creek, Alabama in 1916 - wish he were still around.  He was a true depression era kid who supported his Mom (my grandmother) from when he was only 16 years old until 1968... Folks today have no idea how fortunate they are... 

    This thread has brought back some old memories.

    Pot of beans, rice and cornbread fed the whole family on the cheap.
    Back before they went to food stamps poor people could get "commodities"
    including a bag of beans, bag of rice, flour, meal, real butter,
    and the best tasting cheese you could find.
    Buy some seasoning meat or kill some meat, was good living.

    We Ate Lima beans and rice when I was a kid I still love them @ 71

    Any kind of beans and rice are always gonna be high on the list for stuff that's tasty, filling, relatively simple, and dirt cheap. Cuban black beans or Indian chickpea curries like chana masala or chana saag are tops for me. Buy spices for the curries whole and in bulk at an Asian market near you and they're a fraction of the cost of the little jars of pre-ground stuff at Publix.

    My wife, from India, makes great curries and I can vouch for beans and rice from any culture, particularly red beans and rice from Louisiana or black beans and rice from our local Cuban culture.  Good healthy basic food.  Add a bit of meat or other side dishes and live like a king.

    As someone who loves cooking and was doing so on a college budget until fairly recently, legumes have been held in high esteem for a while!
