It’s a crock!

Menu: Crockpot scalloped potatoes with ham; steamed green beans

Creator of Deliciousness: New Person

As we work on getting back to a regular schedule of MND (Monday Night Dinners) New Person gave us a stick to your ribs slow cooker dish. It was rich and tasty and everything a crock pot meal should be. I (FreeFoodBaby) had been out sailing all day so I was super happy for creamy potatoes and cheese.

New Person made a few adjustments to the Crockpot scalloped potatoes with ham.

She upped the amount of potatoes to 4 pounds (there are 5 of us these days); milk instead of water; and 2 tins cream of mushroom and garlic condensed soup. Ours was cooked 4-5 hours on high.

The richness of our cheesy potatoes and ham was beautifully balanced with steamed green beans.

Once again we all ate more than we intended and left New Person with very little in the way of leftovers. We were so excited to eat this week’s deliciousness I don’t think we took any pictures. But there is a pretty good one on the recipe if you follow the link.

Menu: Hearty Ham and Lentil soup; GF cornbread

Creator of deliciousness: CTG

In my experiences ham soup has always been a salty dish best served with biscuits and a large amount of water. However, this weeks creation by CTG was delicious. There was a balance of ham and lentils that made for a filling and hearty bowl. I’m told that tomato juice was used instead of soup stock; spinach was added and about 1 tsp of better than bullion beef flavour made it in there too. Being a mature crowd with a lentil soup you can tell from the title we kept dinner conversation to economics, politics and current events. I swear, we really did.

GF was kind enough to make us a pan of gf chipotle corn bread which was a wonderful complement with butter dipped in our soup.

We added Friend (without Husband) to our crowd this week as we all had a pub to adjourn to.
