This was another recipe that I was seeing all over Pinterest, so I decided to try it. I don't like ham, but Heath loves it, so I figured it would be a nice dinner for him. It was simple to throw together in the crock pot, so that's always a plus.
Overall, it was ok. Heath thoroughly enjoyed it, but as I said...I don't like ham.
I purchased packaged ham that was already cubed, but you can use whatever you prefer here. I think a ham bone would give it a nice flavor, and I would probably enjoy the shredded ham over the little cubes.
Also, this could definitely stand to use a little more seasoning, but you can play around with it and add whatever you like. I just drowned mine in more salt and pepper :)
Ok guys, gotta run Jesse over to school then I'm headed to Foxwoods for Bingo. I won last week (even got to go in the Money Machine again!) $726 (split with another winner...still $363 isn't bad! More than I walked in with), so here's to hoping Thursday is my lucky Bingo day!
