BEANS X3

Nothing better to sit down  at the table with to eat than a bowl of beans cooked down to a thick soup….The only thing missing was my slice of homemade cornbread and a glass of that good ole sweet tea, but my food program doesn’t allow me to have all of the good stuff so I chose the bowl of beans and boy were they goooood….

Put all of the ingredients in the crockpot with the seasoning and water….turn on high and cook for about 6 hours and corn bread is optional…..enjoy!!!
