While not QUITE obsessed, I have been using the crock-pot a LOT lately. (the discovery of the Crock-pot Lady's Blog has certainly inspired me to try new things) Also, in keeping with those aforementioned resolutions, eating healthy meals at home has been key to resisting temptation, saving time and money and staying on track. What's not to love abut the crock-pot!?!?
I'm really overdue for a trip to the grocery store so supper tonight is a 'pantry/freezer' meal. Here is what is simmering in my crock-pot today:
1 quart sized freezer bag of homemade vegetable spaghetti sauce (I make this in big batches several times a year and freeze the leftovers. the recipe changes depending on what I have on hand)
1 jar Newman's Own spaghetti sauce
1 can low sodium diced tomatoes
1 pkg Italian turkey sausage links browned on the stove top and then cut up (I had these in the freezer)
2-3 generous handfuls of (pre-bagged) baby spinach
1 small (2oz) can sliced black olives drained
1 teas sea salt
generous grind black pepper
This is just a mess of things I found in the cupboards, freezer and fridge. The picture does it no justice. It already looks and smells fantastic. I will serve this over whole wheat noodles.
