"I'm Too Tired to Cook" Bean with Bacon Soup

Tina Barber


I work from 10 to 11 hours a day at my nursery retail store, and most nights I'm exhausted by the end of the workday. I love being able to just throw things in the crock pot and have it ready at the end of the day!

Prep time doesn't include soaking of beans. I soak mine overnight.
