Work smart not hard haha but seriously this attitude is odd. I find a lot of older people think it mostly because I think they used to have a big stigma that came with them. They were only for poor people and things like that. But seriously I could be a millionaire and i would still have my baked beans once a week lol
I love baked beans.. But I can never shake the guilty feeling I get if I feed them to my kids for dinner, especially if it is just with toast, so I hardly ever seem to buy them.
It's because when I was younger, my dad was a shift worker.. And when he was on arvos or dogwatch, tinned baked beans, or spaghetti with toast was almost always on the menu. And it was definitely only because my mother was lazy. Back then it was more effort to get takeaway than it is now. I'm sure, knowing my mum, if takeaway had been easier, she would have done that instead of microwaving beans for us. I hate that I have guilty feelings because of it now, because I know that they are not all that bad, but it just brings back memories.
Baked beans are served regularly in this house and are really the only healthy thing my DH will really eat. He makes 'Cheesy Bean-o's on special days :P
Perhaps she doesn't think it an appropriate "dinner" meal and would prefer you served it as breakfast.
DS has baked beans atleast twice a week here. He's a pretty fussy eater, and I have no issues with giving them to him.
I love baked beans too
The kids have them at least twice a week and my fave brekky is hash browns, baked beans and poached eggs :-)
Organic baked beans on some nice organic bread - what a fantastic meal! Its something that i dont eat every day but now and then its a great meal, full of goodies.
Dont feel bad about eating baked beans, there are waaaaayyyyyyyy worse foods you could be giving your children and feeding yourself.
