Here's a kitchen tip for the day!!!

#1~ When adapting a Baked Bean recipe from cook top to slow cooker, remember that water does not evaporate nearly as much from a slow cooker as it does from an open pot!

#2~ Therefore, reduce water amount in slow cooker by about 2-4 cups.

#3 ~ Failure to do this results in bean soup instead of baked beans.

#4~ To salvage your supper, you can always try adding cooked rice to the mixture, to thicken it up.

#5~ Then, of course, you end up with bean-rice soup.

#6~ So you resort to serving it in bowls, and thanking God that you have a understanding family!

P.S. Guess what we had for supper last night? :)
