My mission is to inspire women and girls of all ages to engage in and enjoy the traditional feminine arts of the women before us. And to be womanly and feminine, if you so desire, and stand out in a world so opposed to this. Enjoying our femininity with no apologies.**
PUT THIS ON TO SIMMER WHILE YOU DO YOUR LAUNDRY. WHEN THE LAUNDRY IS DONE YOUR MEAL WILL BE READY.
1 16 oz. pkg. dry red beans 1 onion, diced, cut in quarters or left whole (take off skin and trim ends) 2 cloves garlic or 2 t. garlic powder 2 t. seasoning salt, or salt and pepper to taste... 1 or 2 bay leaves pinch sugar cayenne pepper, to taste (optional) 1 15 oz. can whole tomatoes 1 6 oz. can tomato sauce 1 bell pepper, seeded, cored, and cut in quarters smoked turkey wings, diced 1 lb. smoked sausage cooked rice SOME LIKE TO ADD RICE TO BEANS, MIX ALL TOGETHER, GOOD BOTH WAYS!
Wash beans, soak overnight and drain. Cover beans and all ingredients with cold water. Bring to boil on medium heat, reduce to a simmer until done. Taste test. May take 3 or more hours, according to the ALTITUDE. Or just according to the beans. Some beans take longer.
I cut the sausage in about 1/2 inch slices (on the diagonal) Fry in a skillet until browned on both sides, drain on paper towel, add to beans.
Serve over rice, along with cornbread, and sweet tea; and you have a truly "southern style" meal.

**My focus is on writing content for women. I'm a woman, my ideas are mainly useful and geared toward women, but of course, anyone can read, peruse my content. I don't care to be gender-neutral, because I come from a background of mostly gender-specific lifestyle, with a few exceptions. I write from life-long experience. I had women role models, and men role models, not neutral. I write from where I have been all of my life. I will not change my wording to appease or pacify any specific group of people. If this offends you, I apologize. If this doesn't suit you - go find tips, recipes, and feminine/womanly lifestyle content elsewhere. From what I understand, fried chicken isn't gender-specific. A woman wearing a dress or skirt and an apron holding a platter of fried chicken is just a woman being herself. Isn't that what we all want is a choice to be ourselves? It's called freedom.
