I learned to make this when my oldest son was a baby. I could start it in the morning in the crockpot and not have to worry about supper that evening. I always make cornbread to go with it. This is one of the first bean dishes that learned to love. I didn't like bean dishes while I was growing up but now this is one of my favorites.
