A Recipe and Homemade Halloween & Fall Stuff!



Please notice the new banner by Lilli! Isn't that the sweetest squirrel?!!!!

This is a really cute book! Lots of funny stuff!!! My recipe comes from this book! Aunt Barb gave it to me 16 years ago! Notice the title....THE COMPLEAT I HATE TO COOK BOOK! On the inside she wrote to a person who doesn't hate to cook! I love to cook and bake!! Almost everyone on my mom's side loves to cook! My brother is a great cook! My Grandma Lovell(my dad's mom) was a great cook, too! Her after church Sunday Lunches were great!!! Enough! Here is my recipe that I should have posted yesterday! Sorry! This is for the Recipe Swap that Randi is gracious enough to host!
I fix this recipe just for me because nobody else likes it, but I love it! I fix this one day and eat them for lunch the next day! They are so good the first day, but they are even better the second day!!! I usually eat this with hot buttery French bread or corn muffins! Sorry I don't have a picture!
HOMEBODY BEANS
2 cans kidney beans(undrained)
3 big fresh sliced tomatoes or 2 cans sliced tomatoes(this is good either way)
2 onions, diced
1/2 pound lean bacon, cut in half

Put the first three ingredients in a casserole dish (you can layer this, but I just dump it in!),
then bake in a 300 degree oven for 2 hours, uncovered, then stir. After stirring add half the bacon and bake for another 2 hours, stir again, making sure you get the bacon stirred down in the beans, then add the other half of bacon. Bake another 2 hours and you are done! That is why these are called HOMEBODY BEANS, you have to be home to stir!! Yummy!!!

Just for fun!
I made the BOO word last year! I made the witch about...I can't remember when I made it, but I gave quite a few for gifts, they are out of paper and wood!!! Love it!

Then I made the this runner and one similar for my mom about 6 years ago! I have 2 snowman runners almost done(almost done for about 6 years!!!)I will get them done this year! These patterns are from Farmyard Creations!

That's all for today! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! BSU Art starts for Lilli tomorrow!!!(my chance to get some WIP'S done!!!)YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY!!!! Two whole hours to do what I want!!!!

Wherever you are whatever you are doing, I hope you have a wonderfully happy day!!!!

Thanks for the recipe! We do like beans, especially with bacon!

I took a peek at your last post and I like the photo of Gayle being involved in her art project. What a sweet sister and mom Gayle has. Blessings to all of you!
