Family Food Traditions

Every Saturday night was beans-and-hot-dogs night.  Whether we were at home with our dad or spending the night at our grandparents' home (just across town), that was the tradition.

It's a Massachusetts thing. 

My father would often include macaroni and cheese, and I liked to cut my hot dogs into pieces to mix in with the mac and cheese.  Now, I do the same - hot dogs and beans, and usually a box of macaroni and cheese to go with it when my son is here.  He just doesn't seem to have much of a taste for baked beans.  ;)

I'm very picky about the brand of baked beans we have.  Only B&M will do.  I've tried Bush's, and it just tastes too spicy.  To me, there doesn't need to be any additional flavor.  Just... baked beans.

What are your family food traditions?

  1. Hi Wendy,

    Hot dogs and B&M beans on a Saturday night, sometimes with B&M Brown bread. I remember those nights fondly. Thanks for bringing them back :-)

    1. So glad you enjoyed the post! It absolutely must be B&M baked beans. Many people don't understand that. :)
