You will find recipes and shopping lists to prepare 5 meals in a week. Why only 5 meals? We ususally have a night of leftovers and another night where I "fly by the seat of my pants" because I don't have time to cook. For instance, "breakfast for dinner" night!

My shopping lists include items for the recipes shown. If you like my side dish suggestions - go ahead and add them to the shopping list, or just add your own.

Hopefully I save you some time that can be spent as quality time with your family instead!

Spiked Beans and Toast
Serves 4
2 slices bacon chopped
1 small onion chopped
1 (28 ounce) can baked beans
2 shots Irish whisky
Black pepper
4 slices white toasting bread
2 tablespoons butter softened
1 tablespoon honey

Heat a medium skillet over medium high heat. Add bacon and cook to render fat, about 5 minutes. Add onions, reduce heat to medium, and cook with bacon until soft, 5 to 6 minutes more. Stir in baked beans. Heat the beans through then reduce heat to low. Remove pan from heat, add the whisky, stir it in, and return pan to heat. If whisky flames, the flare will die out in less than 10 seconds -- just be prepared. For a full whisky-spike flavor, the trick is to avoid the flame and just warm the alcohol: think hot toddy. Season spiked beans with black pepper, to taste.
Toast bread and combine softened butter with honey then spread the mixture evenly among the slices. Serve beans with honey buttered toast.
