"There on the stove you see the bean pot. We always ate Boston baked beans on Saturday night. Warmed over for Sunday morning breakfast they were perfectly delicious with brown bread. Everyone had their special recipe for Boston baked beans and piccalilli which was usually served with them."

Rose Kennedy playing the piano.

Rose Kennedy was a trained musician & encouraged her children to play the piano, but they preferred the radio to their piano lessons. The Kennedy White House show-cased the performing arts--including appearances by poet Robert Frost, soprano Grace Bumby, and cellists Pablo Casales & Yo Yo Ma.
