Hi John-
Thanks for the recipe e-mail entry to your recipe files!!

If my mother had a cook book it was likely with my older sisters. The only cook book of old in the family may be with our daughter Jane (was used by my grandmother Flora E. (Waite) Wells who was born in IA. My mother always prepared good meals during the depression
years in ND. Her goulash, etc was always good. Her baked buns and cinnamon rolls were always special. She would allow them to rise on the hot water radiators.

My parents first lived on the Missouri River southwest of Linton, ND. Dad raised navy beans on the property. They later built a home in Linton, ND a short time before my arrival in 1930 just in time for the drought and depression. I recall the sacks of beans in the cellar. We had a lot of beans those years. What we didn't eat were traded at the grocery store for other food.
I still enjoy a variety of beans including the kind noted above.
