This is a story of redemption. Of overcoming all obstacles. Of refusing to be cowed by mere logic or reason.

You know how my oven broke? And you know how I have two grills? The logical conclusion to a set of baked beans ready to go into a (broken) oven is to try them on the grill. Right?

Nope. Because grills run hot. We already know that hot grills and I don’t mix. Nor do hot grills and baked beans, apparently.

So, the beans turned out a bit tougher and charred than I would have liked, but they were still divine. Divine! Not that I would recommend this cooking method to you.

Maybe the oven will be fixed by this weekend and I can share happier news.

Also, I apparently can’t get enough molasses.

1 Lousiana hot sausage link, diced
1 small yellow onion, diced
1 1/2 tablespoons ground cumin
