It’s Wife Points Wednesday and today I am trying to earn points with the Hub by speaking his language: Food. What does my husband love almost as much as me? Anything that contains bacon. So, this morning I looked up a slow cooker baked beans recipe before work and hopefully I’ll be able to report that they were awesome and my husband now thinks I’m the most wonderful chef in all the lands.
The recipe I used (loosely) is from http://southernfood.about.com/od/crockpotbeans/r/bl64c14.htm:
This is my kind of cooking!
