I haven't used my crock pot in about 4 years. I don't know why, but I'm usually a quick cooking type of girl. But lately, I've been in the mood to try it.
This morning, I pulled it out, chopped up some onions (3 small), carrots (handful of baby size), and ham (about a cup), and threw them in the pot with a pound of lentils and 2 1/2 quarts of water. A little salt, pepper, and minced garlic, and I was done. It's now in the garage (yep, garage... I have to stay away from the smell or I won't be able to eat it by dinner time), cooking away. In a little bit I'm going to throw in some spinach and chopped tomatoes... I hope it turns out well! Ryan was excited to hear he was going to have a home cooked dinner tonight... YUM!
