Friday Night Dinner

Last night, inspired by this recent post on one of my favorite cooking blogs, Dinner: A Love Story, I made baked beans from scratch to accompany some hot Italian sausages from Astoria's own Butcher Bar, homemade leftover-grain bread (I'll save that for another blog post/day), and a simple salad of kale and pecorino.

 Baked Beans (adapted from The Joy of Cooking)
Serves 6

Two 15.5-ounce cans small white or navy beans
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup ketchup
3 tablespoons molasses
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon cider vinegar

Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a baking dish.  Drain and rinse beans and set aside.  Combine the last six ingredients well, then mix in the beans.  Turn out into the baking dish and bake, covered, for 30 minutes.  Stir and bake another 30 minutes, uncovered.
