It’s hard to believe, but the summer is almost over. Soon, the long hot days will give way to the crispness of autumn. The leaves will begin to change, combines and grain carts will rumble back to life to start another harvest, and my Huskers and Packers will finally be back on the field.
For a number of reasons, fall and football always seem to remind me of family and food. I love this time of year and thought I would share one of my favorite family get together/tailgating recipes.
This recipe for calico beans was passed down from my grandma and has been a longtime favorite of our family. One of my favorite things about this dish is how it goes with just about anything. From family potlucks to holiday meals to tailgates, this dish is a proven hit that people will ask you to bring back again.
I hope you enjoy the recipe, and from my family to yours, have an amazing fall.
