Comfort Food

Our Friday night "Tea" was a meal that took me back to my years in England as a teenager.

You see, baked beans are super cheap in England (or at least they were when I lived there, costing about 25 cents for a no name can) and my parents were running on a tight budget with two growing girls. Ergo~ lots of beans on toast. I actually like it though, and Friday was no exception. Rob bought some double smoked bacon and made lardons which he added to generic storebought beans. I get hungry just thinking about it.

There you go, a culinary confession. I like food that doesn't require hours to prepare.

I love tinned baked beans (I always have Heinz Baked Beans). It's one of my staples, along with rice.

I use the canned stuff too! I haven't eaten them in a long time. But, you've reminded me how good they are.

I'm very fond of baked beans on toast! It's almost always a solo meal, though...
