~ Hearty Party Beans ~

Cassie *


I was requested to make the beans for our Mothers Day get together so this is what I threw together...I actually wrote it down for a change, Might I add they were a big hit! Beefy with a lot of bacon. I love the colorful mixture of beans I chose too...

They say you eat with your eyes, and these were definitely delicious!
