Saturday - Part Two

After a lovely breakfast, we actually did venture outdoors for some fresh (seriously fresh) air and a splurge at our favorite magazine store - Atlantic News, where they have tons of fabulous foodie magazines - domestic and imported. I picked up three of my favorites: Fine Cooking, Saveur and, from Down Under - Delicious - Australia with plans to blog in front of the tv, pick an old movie to watch and flip through them all.

And...welcome to my wacky world - three great gourmet magazines and what did we choose to have for dogs & Heinz baked beans. I did add some Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar & some garlic powder, but still.

I do make a mean Chorizo & Bean Chili that is absolutely fantastic, but it takes 2 hours. And besides, some days you really just want to return to your childhood...a time with no cares, and something your mother used to whip up. And I'm embarrassed to say...I still crave it from time to time.

So what's your guilty pleasure from your childhood?

That made me laugh - there are days I am too busy with drooling over foodie mags and recipes to actually make any - beans on toast is a favourite lazy meal - I also love heinz tomato soup - both of which my mum used to make!

Sometimes we just have to keep it simple Ruth. I had Kraft Dinner the other day with a side of tomatoes:D I couldn't send that over to PPN:D

Val, I guess that does have to be our guilty secret...can't wait to see what you DO send to Presto Pasta Nights. I always love your dishes.
