    As a kid, hot dogs and baked beans were just called "beanie weenies." That was what everyone called it. As I got older and met more people from different areas, I discovered that the name of this fine dish is different depending on region. So far, I've heard:

    - Beanie weenies
    - Franks and beans
    - Cowboy stew
    - Chuck wagon
    - And some others I cannot recall.....

    How odd.

    I used to go to my parents every Sunday for dinner in my 20's just so they knew I made it through the week without drinking myself to death.One Sunday it didn't happen so I popped in on Monday night instead.My mother was looking through the cupboards giving my father and I options on what she could whip up on short notice.My dad and I chose beans and weenies and threw down. The next afternoon my dad dropped dead of a heart attack in the driveway. It always makes me laugh that our last meal together ever, we picked beans and weenies!

    That settles it. The food authority has spoken and so it will be.

    I grew up eating them. Always had them with me on fishing trips or just spending time at the lake. Great snack or part of a bigger meal.:thumbsup:

    This thread voted most ghey food thread, 2010. :rofl:

    Here in normal-land, we know what franks and beans are (both definitions), but we call it hotdogs and beans. Because. . . . we wouldn't be caught dead calling it BeanieWeenies.
