Slow Cooker Yellow-Eyed Bean Soup For 2

Slow Cooker Yellow-Eyed Bean Soup For 2

Snowmageddon disappointed me. It was a few hours of light snow mixed with some sleet, but it didn’t stick here in Durham like I hoped. That means that I’m at work today instead of conducting slow cooker bread experiments and sitting in front of the fire while it’s cooking.  I even had my green owl fleece pajamas set out in hopes of a snowy day in.

Oh well, maybe I’ll get a snow day before winter is over. At least I have a hot mug of sugar cookie tea with homemade nut milk. A good cup of tea can be almost as wonderful as sitting in front of the fireplace.
