cook sliced sausage links(i used 4 cheese and jalapeno deer sausage so had to use olive oil), and one chopped onion for few minutes.  add 4 sliced carrots and cook till carrots begin to soften.  add one can or one chopped tomato, 1 tsp oregano, 1 tsp thyme, salt, pepper, 1/2 c  water and 12 oz bag  frozen butter beans.  cook till beans are ready.  serve with corn bread.  this turned out so good that i thought i would share. an easy and very quick dinner!
