First One

Calico Ham and Bean Soup
A success and I am amazed. I made Calico Ham and Bean Soup in the crock pot. My husband is a quiet man and doesn't usually say very much. He took his first spoonful of soup and raised his eyebrow, I knew he liked it. Lots of times he will say, "It's fine" but never say, "It's good". Well I got a good out of him.

The recipe was way more than what we need for the two of us but we will have left overs and I will have another night of not cooking. Hooray! More time to sew. This is a good winter meal and I am sure that at some point in time I will make it again. I think I am going to like this crock pot cooking.

Thanks to everyone who gave me their recipes for crock pots. I am going to try them as well.

That's a favorite here too! I usually make a batch of corn bread to go with it.

Going to share the recipe? I've got a large ham bone and quite a bit of ham that needs using up.
