United States Senate Bean Soup

Well since Larry posted his bean soup recipe thought I might as well give up one I had stashed away. This is supposedly whut the crooks..er I mean the pubic servants in the US Senate eats regularly. It was snagged from a post by a great pal o mine named Jack Chambles who hangs his hat in Hotlanta despite being raised in El Campo, TX. Can already see that way too much celery for my taste buds. I would change that to one or two small stalks maybe. Now whut is up with the mashed tates I aint got a clue. Thicken it up maybe.

Hey Gang, I prepared this bean recipe tonight and it is one of the
best I've ever had. Bet it would go great with Smoked Butt, but
don't know yet. Very simple and delicious!
I stold it from The Chef's World Wide Recipes -
TheChef@wwrecipes.com
Enjoy

For years people have been trying to obtain and invitation to eat in
the dining room in the United States Senate Office Building. One
specialty stood out above all the others. It was the

Wow can't believe I posted that recipe twice and was going for thrice till I stumbled over your post. Good news is I went back and deleted the redundancies. Sure glad your here to keep us straight. I think you need an immediate pay raise and promotion. Feel free to pass this post on down to the money man/decision maker type dude or dudette. Got mo good news is just picked up a fresh half gallon of Ezra last date. Hopefully it last till Monday. We are good churchy folks here in God's Country. Can't buy to go Whiskey on Sunday ya know? Now you can drink it at the watering hole all you want past Noon. Guess they figger church should be over by then.

Yep I cant hardly remember all the stores being closed on Sundays myself. Now there was an exemption for car lots. They closed on Sat and stayed open on Sunday cuz the law read the bizness must shut down one day a week but didn't specify whut day. Guess they musta been mainly owned by Jewish Folks cuz Saturday is Sunday to them. Yeppers that got to be it. The fella who can recall all this stuff got to be older than dirt.

I remember that here in AR folks couldn't open their stores on the day they celebrated their sabbath. Even then the few stores that were open on Sunday couldn't sell a lot of things due to the blue laws. Don't remember what all you could and couldn't sell on Sunday but do remember batteries were off limits

Yeah I remember they used to tape off certain sections of the grocery stores. You could shop anywhere on the near side of the tape. The Geegaw section was always marked off limits.
