Daily Peep: Pimping Iron

Here, Peeper is enjoying some beef, turkey and cantaloupe.

This afternoon, I opened a can of baked beans for the two of us.

I added a cut up hotdog to mine to make beenie-weenies, and she had hers smooshed onto a piece of toast.

(I learned that from my lovely British baby-feeding friends. They talk about having baked beans on toast for breakfast. I wonder if it's anything like what I fed her?O)

We had another round of the same later this evening.

Confidential to Shrike: You might want to stop at your sister's house on the way home and crash there. I'm not sure you will enjoy sharing a bed with us tonight.


  1. Okay, I was curious, so I googled "baked beans on toast." It's just what it sounds like.

    Basically, heat some canned baked beans, pour on toast, serve. A lot of the "recipes" also call for topping with or adding options such as cheese, onion, peppers, and/or other non-Peeper friendly additions. Apparently very popular in the UK.

    It does sound good. It's been a long time, but I've eaten baked bean sandwiches before and enjoyed them. Might have to try it with cheese or something sometime. :)

  2. Hmmm, one recipe calls for whiskey. Guess that one is not Peeper friendly. Most just use regular sliced bread, but one used English muffins (makes sense) and another garlic bread made with Texas toast (YUM!)

    The real purists recommend Heinz baked beans in tomato sauce, that they say are hard to come by in the states. Some turn up their noses at "our" kind with molassas in them. (Molassas has iron in it, so it actually seems like a good way to go, besides, duh, it's molassas.)

    And... they have their own Facebook page!

  3. I put hers on one side of a sandwich thin and smushed them to make them stick to it.

    No cheese (of course), onion or bell pepper, but that sound delicious.

    And, of course, the molasses for extra iron.

  4. Peeper just makes me smile. Her whole face lights up!!! I love it!!!!


What say you?
