The past five days have been a whirlwind around Our House. Thursday, we had to do some last minute shopping for the wedding we were attending on Saturday. Then Friday, among other things, my daughter Aimee and I had our monthly Bunco game. We all dressed up and brought food with a Halloween Theme. I took my friend Kristin from Dizzy, Busy and Hungry‘s Pepperoni Twirls and an awesome Slow-Cooker Caramel Party Mix that I found at Hot Momma’s Kitchen
Saturday we attended the wedding. It was beautiful as all weddings should be. Sunday we went church, had lunch out and did some shopping at Sam’s Club. Then, yesterday the Cowboy had a doctor’s appointment. So it was lunch out, again and hurry home to make it to my hair appointment and then come home and make my Spanish rice to take to our monthly Leverett Cousins DIVA Night at my cousin Ginger’s house. She had everything all decorated and we dressed up in our Halloween finery. We ate enchiladas with all the fixin’s, visited and decorated pumpkins and had a wonderful time as always.
Today I was all set to do nothing but sit at the computer and play catch-up on blogging and the laundry that Savannah kept dragging into the living room while we were gone all weekend. But, the killer dust bunnies were taking over around here and I could no longer stand it. So, I got out my trusty “Swiffer” and went to work. (What did we do before “Swiffer”? I’m just sayin’) I also put my Polar Fleece sheets on the bed. I found them last year on QVC. They are softer than any sheets I’ve ever slept on and I have waited all spring and summer for it to get cool enough to put them back on the bed. 🙂
Needless to say when it came to food preparation for supper I was looking for easy, filling comfort food. The Cowboy has been asking for hot dogs for a few days now. But, when given the choice between hot dogs on a bun and my Baked Beanie Wienies. The choice for him was easy.
Here’s How I made them:
GRAMMY’S BAKED BEANIE WIENIES
1 pkg. wieners or 1 ring sausage
2 (15 oz.) cans pork n beans
1/4 C. onion, chopped
2 T. ketchup
3 T. brown sugar
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1 T. prepared or spicy brown mustard
Slice wieners or sausage diagonally into 1″ pieces. Spray a 2 qt. microwave safe dish with non-stick cooking spray.
Combine pork n beans, onion, ketchup, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and brown sugar in the dish. Add the cut up wieners or sausage. Make sure the bean mixture is covering wieners or sausage. Bake @ 350*F for 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
NOTES : You could also microwave on high 6 minutes. Stir and
microwave another 2 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Let stand for 2 minutes and stir before serving.
