"Special Occasion" Bacon and Bean Pot

Author Notes: When I was a kid (elementary school age), this was our dinner (with copious amounts of white bread and soft butter) on the night of the Academy Awards each year. My mom, dad, and I would sit at a 'special event" card table with the fold-out legs and matching fold-out chairs in front of the (1950's style) TV screen and watch the whole program. I could stay up late for the occasion. Needless to say, it has a special place in my food memories.jph
