Dinner For 10/10/11

Yesterdays dinner was Ham & Bean Soup. It's a cheap, filling dinner that provides many leftovers for our family and beans are a protein so that is always good.

8 ounces Great Northern beans, soaked overnight, drained
(i use a lb of dry beans)
4 cups water to start with then i add 2 more cups after cooking 30min.
1 (15 oz.) can tomato sauce
Seasoned salt and pepper to taste
2 - 2 1/2 med. potatoes, diced
2 carrots, chopped or baby carrots.
1-2 small onions, chopped
1 cup diced ham ( i prefer Fareways smoked ham, mmm)

In a kettle, cover beans with fresh water; bring to a boil, reduce heat, then simmer for 30 minutes. Drain beans. Combine beans and remaining ingredients in Crock Pot. Stir. Cook on low 8 to 10 hours. Adjust seasonings.
Serves 4. ( it says serves 4 but it fills my crockpot full)

Cost of dinner: $4.59
