Featured Colonial House Plan: Elegant and Simple – The House Plan Shop

Colonial House Plan, 027H-0169What’s old is new again. The elegant simplicity of this Colonial house plan will never become obsolete. Stunning details like the treatment of the windows and gables, plus the sturdiness of a brick exterior lends to its historic appearance. George Washington didn’t sleep here only because you haven’t built it yet. If he did, he would find plenty of room with four bedrooms on the second floor. He would be impressed by the modern interior, beyond the convenience of indoor plumbing, which by the way includes two full baths and laundry. Whether dining on mutton at the kitchen food bar or the dining room table, or warming himself at the great room’s fireplace, he would be at home with the warmth and coziness of this two-story home plan. What a great place to begin your own history.

Baked Beans

It seems like everyone has their own recipe for tweaking canned pork and beans. But in case you don’t, this easy recipe is a good one to get you started

 

Baked Beans 

½ to 1 pound of bacon

1 onion chopped

2 16 ounce cans of pork and beans

½ cup brown sugar

¼ cup ketchup

3 tbs of prepared yellow mustard

1 tbs of lemon juice

 

Cook the bacon. Cut it into pieces and set aside. Add the chopped onion to some of the bacon grease and cook until it is soft. In a large bowl, mix everything but the bacon. Put the mixture in a baking dish. A Dutch oven works great. Top with the bacon and cooked covered in a 350 degree oven for 45-60 minutes.
