BAKED BEANS BY COMMITTEE

BAKED BEANS BY COMMITTEE

Preparing for some good baked beans

I gathered materials…

Bought us lots of bacon

And the standard procedurals.

Not wanting lots of sugar

That puts me in a spin….

I bought sugar-free syrup

With dark brown sugar in.

somehow I thought one pound was weak,

Insisted we cook up two…

She found a nine-by-twelve inch pan

And said it’ll have to do!

I THOUGHT…the bacon would

Be cooked in with the beans…

SHE DECIDED to cook it separate

To lessen fat it seems!

I should have done a little pot

With bacon unsupervised…

But I assumed–perhaps too much–

And was pleasantly surprised!
