Change of plans--it's Toddler time
No Funky and Frugal finds Monday this week! I am babysitting my nearly 4 yr old niece this week so I won't have much time (or energy) for large posts.
She is currently taking a nap (phew) which gives me an opportunity to do a quick post. Our plans for today are to have a grill out/ picnic in the back yard and to play in the garden.
When she wakes up from her nap, we are going to take a quick trip to Target so I can
spoil buy my niece her very own garden tools!
And we are buying a flower pot and some marigold seeds so she can have own flower garden!
Maybe something like this?
As far as the grill out/ backyard picnic goes-- burgers, dogs, baked beans, potato salad, strawberries and angel food cake. Yum!!
(Canary beans are bigger and firmer bean--perfect for little fingers and unsteady spoons. There are no diced vegetables, it's not very spicy and it's kinda sweet)
2 of the 16 oz cans of Canary beans drained and rinsed (I use Bush brand)
1 can condensed tomato soup
1/4 c water
2-3 tbs molasses
2 tbs Worcestershire sauce
1 c brown sugar (packed firm)
1 tbs mustard
1 tbs onion powder
1-2 tbs dried minced onion
1/4 tsp garlic
1/4 tsp paprika
pinch of salt
pinch of pepper
pinch of cumin powder
Combine all ingredients. Mix well. Bake at 350° for about an hour until sauced has thickened. You can add some fried and very well drained bacon crumbles if you like.
Happy Monday Y'all!
