Good morning sweet pea!

I love beans but have never mastered cooking them, I've soaked, boiled, baked - tried everything and they never come out tender and good. This recipe works! I used dried white northern beans and put in a large can of chicken broth, threw in the chicken breasts and the rest can be to taste. I added lots of chopped garlic, lovage, cumin, hot sauce, pepper, onions, a swig of white wine and an Italien pepper. Then crock on low overnight - it was probablly 11 hours. It's quick and easy, hardly any preparation and delicious.
On a side note, my Works in progress for this wednsday got put on the quilt blog by mistake. If you want to see what I've been up to last week go here
Here are a few photos I took on my walk today
