Branny gave us a home-run with the beans; I've been wanting to attempt something like this for a while but didn't know where to start. Thanks, Branny! We loved 'em. I cooked them in a 2.5qt slow cooker. Cutting the recipe in half (using 1 pound dried beans) yielded enough beans for three dinner servings, two leftover portions, and enough to freeze for a future dinner-for-3. I used cranberry beans since that is what I had, and omitted the bacon called for in the original recipe (see link).
The chicken was simply grilled and basted with Trader Joe's BBQ sauce, my personal favorite. The rice was a basmati-wild-rice blend I've had for awhile; it has dried vegetables in it. I cooked it in homemade beef broth, leftover from when I pressure-cooked stew beef for my curry last week.
The little guy ate his entire ramekin of beans, punctuating a few bites with a pipsqueaky "Mmm, I love Bos'on beans." He ended his Letter B Dinner with a gluten-free Brownie. What else? :)
