Friday Night Special (Aaaaand The Jonas Brothers)

Okay, so Hubby's out of town and Momma's going out tonight! I was supposed to meet up w/some girlies and play BUNCO (I love BUNCO), but the plans have changed due to just about everyone being on bless-ED vacation. So I'm going out for "drinks and hor'dourves." Sounds good.

So it's movie night for my girls. Grandma is coming over to watch the premiere of Camp Rock (I am actually a little--a lot--bummed I'm missing this, but I'm recording it for later). So I prepared this wonderful KID'S MEAL, courtesy of "KIRBYGOLDS" on It's all about the kiddos tonight, but it was actually VERY YUMMY. It's supposed to serve six, but was just me and my two girlies a-eating, so you might want to make more. It was really good though. Here's the recipe:


2 teaspoons margarine
3 tablespoons chopped onion
1 (16 ounce) can baked beans with pork (I used Bush's vegetarian baked beans)
1 (16 ounce) package frankfurters, sliced (I used Jennie-O Turkey Hot dogs)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
1 teaspoon celery salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Saute onions in butter until tender. Stir in the baked beans and sliced frankfurters. Season with brown sugar, mustard and celery salt. Transfer to a 2 quart casserole dish.
Bake for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. tonight, while the kiddos and grandma are munching on Red Vines and popcorn w/a few Junior Mints thrown in the mix, watching those cutie Jonas Brothers, Momma will be out trying to be an adult and make adult conversation. It's been a while, so there is very good potential blog material to be made tonight. This could be good.

Oh, and here's the recipe for the fruit dip (thank you Tina at Allrecipes) that I was supposed to take to BUNCO tonight. The girls and grandma can munch on this tonight too. Sheesh...maybe I should just stay hoooooooome...

Tina's Fruit Dip

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sour cream
3 teaspoons vanilla extract

In a saucepan over medium heat, stir together the butter and brown sugar. Remove from heat when the butter has melted.
In a medium mixing bowl, whip together the butter mixture, sour cream and vanilla. Serve warm, or allow the dip to chill and thicken in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

Happy Friday night, y'all!

I have yet to play Bunco. I am thinking I've been living under a rock...still...about so many things. And a girls night out...with adult conversation...just give me a minute to put my face on and I'll be right there...

I think the food sounds yummy! And I so wish we had the Disney channel; the Jonas brothers have been on every talk show lately doing pr for this movie (that I can 't see because of the aforementioned channel we don't have).
