Go to the your local grocery store and load up on water and batteries! Lock up the women and children, and head to your storm shelter. Why? Birdman's on the loose in the kitchen again. Sunday, I made a batch of Jacob's Cattle baked beans and some homemade bread. Growing up, if it was a Saturday, it was a day of the aroma of baked beans wafting throughout the rooms. Pinto, Kidney, Jacob's Cattle, Navy. Take your pick. Mom prepared the best. We also had fried dough. No, not the sugaring item you find at local fairgrounds, but hunks of bread dough, about the size of rolls, flattened out and cooked in oil on the stovetop. Mmmmm! Delicious and filled with memories. Sunday, I did my best. I think Mom would have loved that meal!
