I need this thread, I have been having trouble coming up with quick dinner ideas lately. Tonight we're having red beans & cornbread, with steamed carrots and peas on the side. I did a quick soak with the beans this morning then put them in the crockpot with garlic, bay leaves, onion powder, and no-chik'n bouillon cubes. The cornbread is baking right now, in a cast-iron skillet, sizzling in coconut oil. Mmmm, it sure does smell good!
