Planting and Cooking

Grace is very proud of her tomato! She planted tomatoes and squash this year. This is the first one ready for harvest! We chopped it up and used it in our tacos...yum!My Goober :)

Potatoes are on thing I can count on my family enjoying, no matter how they are prepared. This recipe is easy and I love that you can throw it in the slow cooker and forget it for a few hours. The ham made the dish a little on the salty side, but if you give it a good stir before serving it is alright. I am going to tweak this recipe a bit to be a side dish, minus the ham.
Scalloped potatoes and Ham
6 large russet potatoes,sliced into 1/4 inch rounds
1 ham steak (about 1 1/2 pounds) cut into chunks
1 can cream of mushroom
1 soup can of water
1 cup shredded cheese
grill seasoning to taste
Layer potatoes and ham in slow cooker
combine soup, water, cheese and seasoning in large bowl, pour over potatoes. cover and cook on high 3 1/2 hours or until potatoes are fork tender. turn to low setting and continue to cook for another hour.
