Bean Stew

Here in New England, we have a Nor’Easter approaching us & there’s nothing in the world like having a nice hot cup of soup or stew when you’re stuck in the house! I Love that I get to spend a day with my whole family & relax with a warm cup of stew & a light dessert; a day full of games & just hanging together, maybe a movie or two thrown in there! Hoping that all of you are safe who’ll be in the midst of this storm or another one, before Spring arrives! Hoping you all enjoy this recipe or any other comforting food to get you through the storm! Make the best of it! :D!!
