Beanie Weenies

Now, most people that either don’t read my blog, or read it occasionally… aka people at work or school, just think I eat high-end gourmet what not. But really, I eat normal things… pretty regularly. Maybe just the way I describe the things I eat make it sound more than it is, but to me, the way I describe food is different than how your average person describes food. Who can relate? I mean, food, to me, is a personal adventure. You never know where it will take you, and you definitely don’t know how good something is unless you have the pleasure of placing it in your mouth. Am I right? You know I am.

Anyway, today’s dish is pretty normal to the average American, Beanie Weenies. And I know, you’re like, Beanie Weenies? Don’t those things come in a can in the bean aisle? Yeah, but seriously, they’re way better when you actually make them at home. You can have them as a side, or as a main dish like we did!
