Crock Pot Dinners: Potato and Ham Soup

Ingredients

7 cup of diced potatoes (about half a can)
1 cup of diced onion
1 stalk of celery, chopped
1 medium bell pepper, chopped
2 cup of ham, diced
4 cups of hot water
4 small bouillon cubes
1 cup 2% milk
1/2 cup sour cream
Salt and Pepper to taste
basil
1 cup of chopped cauliflower

I put all the ingredients together in my crock pot and placed it in my fridge. I like to prepare my meals in advance to free up some time for homework with my kids. I pulled everything out and plugged up my slow cooker before we left for the day. It was really nice coming home and not having to cook.

I didn’t take a picture of the final product but I will try to take one tomorrow when I eat some for lunch.

Slice the pepper and onion and set aside.

Heat a skillet with remaining oil and sauté the onion and pepper. Add ginger, black pepper, salt, basil and diced tomatoes and cook to your liking.

This was a last minute dinner idea that I came up with after baking the chicken leg quarters. I was able to cook dinner and go on a nice 3 mile run with a friend. everyone loved how this turned out and I can’t wait to come up with another recipe that the whole family is going to love.
