Beanie Weenies

One of Ryan’s favorite meals is beanie weenies.

Not familiar with beanie weenies? It’s a fancy and fun lil’ name for the traditional franks ‘n’ beans dish!

Baked beans with chopped-up hot dogs really is a delicious one-bowl meal. Ryan introduced me to the yumminess and I’m quite a fan.

What’s your favorite way to enjoy baked beans?

I like ’em best on top of a grilled hot dog filled with lots of veggies and condiments. YUM.


Though I didn’t have beanie weenies for lunch today, I did enjoy beans!

I made tuna salad using light Miracle Whip, relish and mustard and stirred in a bunch of kidney beans.

I plopped the mix on top of shredded lettuce and dug in!

It was good… not beanie weenies good, but still quite delish, not to mention much more nutritious.

Back to work… lots on the to do list today!
