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.
Hmmm. On the list of “things I think are most likely to kill me”, “volcanic eruption” wasn't ever close to the top of my list, until now. Amazing how life throws ya curveballs, eh? LOL... In all seriousness, though... eh, if it happens, it happens.
