It's fall and all you want to do is eat sugar and carbs. You are more snug in your house. And you begin the cycle of hibernating.....but not before eating 35 of Summer's Whoopie Pies.Here is a meal I made this week. Today will be my third day eating it.. Guess I got my money's worth.

Since it was so epic-ha I said epic, I am so cool
Anyway, I was looking something to make and decided to add a little comfort to it. I still used basically the same recipe as last time. But this time, I used good ol Southern baked beans with it. My friend had given me some baked beans. The big can. So I put brown sugar, ketchup,mustard, chopped onion and garlic seasoning. That's the real way to eat beans. Fo sho!
I lined the baking ban with olive oil and the beans. Then, I took organic chicken strips and rubbed sea salt on them. Then, I took nitrate free bacon and wrapped each strip.
Here's where the good part is.
I bury the strips in the sweet goodness of what is baked beans and put it in the oven.
I cooked covered for 30 minutes at 400 for 30 minutes. I wasnt sure if I was supposed to so I just did it because I've seen my mom do it. I dont' really know the details to cooking. It is more of an artistic outlet for me. So it is never specific. I just go with the flow.
It wasn't impressive when I uncovered it at 30 min. So I took off the covering and cooked for another hour.
Yes, I like my bacon crispy but it also makes the chicken fall apart.
My husband even liked it. But because he didn't get seconds, I know the real deal. You can't fool me!
So, enter I've eating it for three days. Cool with me.
So, its still somewhat healthy. Not an everyday meal like I've done it. Moderation is good. I think it can be determined healthy.
I guess you can take the girl out of the South but you can't take the Southern out of the girl.
