Featured Recipe Submission...

Hi Michelle, I enjoy your BetterBudgeting site and am a frequent reader. My family loves this soup and it is so easy and healthy. I even use less ham and it still turns out great!

Crock Pot Congressional Bean Soup

8 cups water
2 cups diced lean cooked ham
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tsp. salt
1 pound dried Navy beans
1 cup finely chopped celery
2 Tbsp. finely chopped parsley
1/4 tsp. pepper

In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Add beans (picked through), and boil gently 2 minutes. Turn off heat and let stand covered 1 hour. Pour all including water, into a slow cooker. Add remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on HIGH 6-7 hours until beans are very soft.
