    Default Tonight's dinner

    My husband is home now so I have to feed him. But I have to be careful not
    to buy too much food, particularly because what he eats isn't necessarily
    what Angela and I eat.

    I got a tub of pulled pork and a bag of cheap hamburger buns before he came
    home. Got Angela some gluten free buns today. I served that to them along
    with some Bush's baked beans and leftover vegan potato salad and coleslaw.
    But what was I going to eat?

    I didn't feel like making another meal for myself. Some of the hamburger
    buns got smashed when something heavy (I forget what) fell over on the bag
    of groceries in the back of the van.

    So I took a largish piece of broken off hamburger bun, layered on some of
    the baked beans and then covered it with thinly sliced white onion. These
    beans are not my favorite. We got some S & W baked beans with bacon. They
    are quite a bit lower in carbs. But the cans are smaller too. One can
    wouldn't have been enough for the three of us. So I made do with the other.
    I had this with some raw baby yellow carrots. The carrots were not so good.
    Not sweet like I remembered them being. But the beans were soooo good!

    I haven't had this meal in a long time. I first had beans over bread at a
    friend's house. She used pork and beans straight from the can and served at
    room temp. over buttered bread. I loved this meal but it horrified my mom
    so it was not something I could get away with very often as a child.

    As an adult, I discovered the joy of onions so I added those to the meal.
    Then I learned that I could use leftover baked beans when I had them. Then
    I bought a British cookbook that had a recipe for kidney bean rarebit. I
    used to make that quite a lot when I was first married. I loved it. Not so
    sure husband did. He's not a real bean lover like I am.

    Not sure when I will get this meal again. But it sure was good! BG was a
    bit on the high side, but considering what it has been running these past
    few days, not bad.

    My absolute favourite Welsh Rarebit "recipe" as a kid was fridge-cold
    canned baked beans on toast and then melted cheddar over the top.

    Tonight we are having some kind of chicken. I am not cooking but I did
    see rolled chicken around butter on the bench. The smell of garlic is
    very pungent. I don't know what veggies are being cooked either so it
    will all be a big surprise

    Beef stew coming here. Jun wants me to eat more, so she's trying to make
    more American food for me. She sauteed some onion and garlic in EVOO then
    added beef, cut into bite size chunks and water. I can smell it simmering
    away. I see potato, tomato, sliced carrots and celery on the side board.
    Don't know how she'll season it. I'll be ready in about 1-1/2 hours. ;-)

    I used to feed my kids Beans on toast a lot. ...first heard about Beans on
    Toast when we were stationed in England.

    I hadn't heard of it until I started watching Britcoms. But I still didn't
    know what kind of beans they were eating. For some reason I assumed it was
    green beans.

    Interesting! I have bought Heinz beans but I can't remember where.

    Okay. I'll have yours then.

    If I don't like something, I couldn't eat it if I were starving. I would
    just starve.

    That's because you've never been truly hungry (the starving kind of hunger.)
    I hope none of us ever are.

    No. If something is repulsive to me, I can't bring myself to eat it at all,
    ever.
