Summer, baked beans and a list

Today is Sunny and 87 degrees.  I am so happy I could do a cartwheel, except that I don't know how to do a cartwheel and I might break my ankle...
Anyway, I love summer I love spring I love hot weather!  I filled the pool with freezing well water, and the kids jumped right in, it never ceases to amaze me that kids don't care how cold water is they just love it.  We are having our first bonfire of the year tonight and a cookout with friends.  Have I mentioned yet that I love this weather?
So let me share my baked beans recipe
2 large cans of Bush's baked beans (country style)
1 large onion
1 lb mild sausage
1 cup white sugar
First brown the sausage and onion as it gets done add the sugar and then add the beans simmer for a few hours, and for heaven sake, remove the nasty piece of fat in the beans!  I promise people will love this recipe, and when they ask where you got it say from my friend Happy Mommy!
Oh and a list top 10 summer things I love
10. ocean
9. pool
8. sprinkler
7. cookouts
6. bonfires
5. camping
4. lake
3. fireworks
2. Popsicles
1. catching lightning bugs

Happy Friday!

I had noooooo idea that lighting bugs were so neat until we moved here. I love standing on our front porch and looking across our property at all the twinkling lights! AMAZING!
It is 79* here. Gorgeous. I think I hear the hose on too! I'm sure the water is like ice! As long as they're happy, huh?!

Oooohhh....Baked beans. The musical fruit...the more you eat...the more you, well, you know.

We had some awesome beans the other night at a bbq and I bet it was exactly what you described...I saw onions in them and they were tangy and sweet.

You da bomb happy mom!
