Susan is back with a quick and easy recipe Smokey Navy Beans And A Little Kale!
I threw together these beans in about 5 minutes in the Crock Pot and ran out the door for the day. Oh, my! They were delicious. Just saying! They were good enough for a meal.
I always have homemade chicken broth in the freezer. If you buy roasted chicken or if you make it yourself, don’t forget to boil the bones before you toss them. Store it in the freezer and anytime you need some in a recipe, pull it out,
Also, a piece of bacon never hurts the taste! Again, just saying…..
I only had a little kale and decided to throw that in the last 30 minutes. I loved the addition.
But the smoked ham I used…..and only about 4 ounces of it…..was really good ham. It was not lunch meat but a ham that had been smoked over night by a local church. So, it was quite smoky and delicious all on it’s own. The flavor of it, along with the bacon, was awesome.

Hi, my name is Susan and I have only been blogging for a few months but I love it. Permanent Posies (Creative Chaos) is my blog and my subject matter is…well, that depends on the day and the mood. But, for the most part, I love cooking, watching the Food Network, reading cookbooks and, of course, eating. I am also an artist and spend time each week in my studio (bedroom) oil painting. I am a mother of four and a grandmother to 5 and that, along with my husband and 2 dogs, take up my most of my time. I am a side-tracked Home Executive and I had the privilege of being a stay –at-home mom so, you might say that my passion is the home and making a haven for those I love. I am quite skilled at shopping 🙂 and finding a bargain just makes my day.
