Mama’s Baked Beans

baked beans

Hello, again, from your friendly, slow-to-update blogger!  😀  It has been a busy few months:  birthdays, anniversary, buying a house, moving, family reunions, and life in general.  These baked beans have actually made an appearance at two of this summer’s events:  Erin’s, my mother-in-law, birthday party and the church homecoming potluck.  They were lapped up lickedy-split at the party and were over half gone at the potluck.  (In fact, after the party, My Honey’s cousin Caleb told me that I’m the best because I brought the baby and the beans.  High praise, I think.)  Now, I made a large pan of them (bigger than a 9×13) both times, but I do have a small version of the recipe that I will post on here.  It will fit in a nice square baking pan, about 8×8 or 9×9.  It’s my Mama’s own recipe.  She even made a special trip to the house to teach me how to make them before the birthday party.  Seeing Connor had nothing to do with it.  😉
