Crockpot Bean and Bacon Soup

Crockpot Bean and Bacon Soup

I have quite a few recipes that I've been meaning to share with you all, but just haven't found the time to do so.

You know as the end of the year approaches, school wise, we are in high gear and trying to get everything done as soon as possible so summer can officially start.

I've been cooking yummy stuff, and I do remember to take photos, just don't get around to posting them here, but I'm going to try and remedy that over the next few days, and really get everything up on the blog.

Starting with this delicious soup.  I know that the weather is warming up, but there a lot of you who are still seeing cold temperatures and even snow, so here's a great suggestion for a delicious dinner.
