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 -
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
