On a Blustery Fall Afternoon
Today has been stormy. Now that I have a great friend named Stormy, I always feel like I should capitalize that word.
It's been a bit rainy, windy, and overcast. The reds, yellows, and browns of Fall are being swept through the streets on the wind.
I went to grab a few things at the store, and I noticed the big cans of crushed pineapple on sale for a dollar. I couldn't resist.
I knew a dish that would hit the spot on a cold day like today: Mom's bacon and beans (with pineapple, onion, and bell pepper). I know I've blogged about it before, but today it tasted SO good! The smell alone satisfies hunger.
I bought a big box of blue nitrile gloves at Napa that I keep in my trunk for when I'm working on greasy projects. Well, I also use them when I cut onions. I probably look like Dexter from Dexter's lab, but at least my hands won't smell like that awful onion smell for the next week or so.
Mom, your dish hit the spot and warmed this Stormy day. And I put 4 containers of it in the freezer. I'll be enjoying it a while longer.
