What kind of beans? I've always liked taking plain pork n beans, adding bacon, some green onions, and some BBQ sauce cooked nice and slow.
Or, there are some good 15 bean soup packages in the stores around here, to which you add a can of diced tomatoes, the juice of a lime (or lemon), diced ham and about a clove of garlic. They can be cooked in a slow cooker and they are awesome.
As a life time fan of samurais and ninjas, I made it a point to watch this movie. I was expecting it to be a little cheesy, but the movie was really well done. Excellent acting, especially by Ken Watanabe (forgive me if I spelt it wrong).
