"Hating to discard the liquid from the beans, I basted some chicken breasts I was baking with the liquid and they turned out fine."

1 can (15 ounces) kidney beans
1 can (15-1/4 ounces) lima beans
1 can (16 ounces) pork and beans
8 slices bacon, diced
1 large onion, diced
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
