Today was a wonderful Sunday. Saturday night I soaked 2 lbs of Great Northern Beans and this morning cut up wonderful veggies and ham to put into our new slow cooker!
This is a great slow cooker! I am glad it is a big one because this reciepe filled it to the brim!
Here is the recipe, I made it a double batch so everything was doubled in our crock pot.
Crock Pot Great Northern Beans
1 lb Great Northern Beans
1 onion, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons veg. or chicken bouillion (my suggestion would be to not use bouillon if you are adding ham, ours ended up being pretty salty)
1 bay leaf
1/4 cup olive oil
1-2 tbsp butter
salt & pepper to taste
ham is optional
Add 1 cup of water and cook all day on low in crock pot about 10 hours.
|towards the end the liquid decreases and becomes a bit creamy as some of the beans break apart|
|Very savory and tasty. A little bit too salty for me next time I will not add bouillon if I add ham, and even then I will probably only add half the bouillon of the recipe if I don't add ham!|
|My opinion is salt can be added per person depending on how you like it. But over all a great recipe it really hit the spot and we have tons of left overs!!|
We also went to Michael's to get some wreath making supplies. I really wanted to make a wreath!
|So sparkly and golden. I loved creating my own handmade wreath. With a jingle bell :)|
|Hubby help me take pictures while I made the wreath, and he is work on making a mosaic wall hanging! I will certainly be helping too. I love art projects!|
Goodnight and Sweet Dreams.
