Now this, this is sausage and beans and class all in one bowl. High Class Franks and Beans. What you choose to call it is your own thing
Franks and beans. Like the manliest, out doorsy, cowboy wrangling, think of an open fire and a tin can sort of meal that exits right. Yeah well, went and chucked that out the window. One, I would take an Oscar Mayer and a can of Bush’s and call that a feast for a king, but I knew it simply wouldn’t fly. (so sad). Two, it ain’t exactly classy on the table. Now this, this is sausage and beans and class all in one bowl.
What you choose to call it is your own thing.
