Personal Notes:
This recipe is so easy and I made it by mistake one night because I try to put beans into everything. I did not do the exact measurements like most people like because I always wing it. I was the one sitting at the dinner table waiting for the food while my brother and sister learned how to cook. I was only interested in eating it. So here it is. I hope you enjoy it. I love it!
