Pork and Beans

If I ate leftovers like this every day, I might actually enjoy it when My Beloved is away on a business trip. A happy accident occurred when I decided to combine the last scoop of baked beans with the last few slices of a barbecued pork tenderloin that we enjoyed a few days before.

I don't think I have ever eaten Mrs. Ferguson's baked beans with anything besides hot dogs in all the years I've been eating them! Just goes to show you that you're never too old to learn. The smoky flavor of the pork that My Beloved had grilled outside on the slow side of the barbecue until it was only very slightly pink really, really enhanced the sweet-tart of the beans with onions and citrus peel - even without the salty layer that frankfurters add, this combination was much, much better. Pork and beans with a kick! Almost compensation for missing that man.

Barbecue at Zoomie's!
Bonus points to the Mr. for the pink, perfect grilling, and to the Mrs. for the plating.

Pork and Beans - good for what ails you. My grandmother used to make pork and beans in an old stoneware crock, the kind that you could put in the back of the oven and let simmer all day. Of course, those were the bad old days when we seasoned them with fatback and pork belly and molasses - fat and sugar. YUMMY! But so un-PC.

Heather, you said it!

Cookiecrumb, why, thanks!

Nancy, I've stopped worrying about PC - I'm too old to care now. :-)

Morgan, yes, we love the bee plates. We've had them for years and they are still favorites!
