One of the swell things about Fellow Traveler is that she too likes to cook. Our weekends can be like a friendly version of Iron Chef.
Here's one of her recipes. We tasted it at someone's open house, and liked it, and she got the recipe. She made it for our last church potluck, where it was a great success. It's also amenable to additions and substitutions.
Crockpot Sauerkraut, Kielbasa and Beans
a pound of kielbasa
a jar of sauerkraut, well rinsed and drained
a can of navy or great northern beans, with liquid
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 TBS ketchup
Put this in a crockpot, stir it all together and let it simmer all day. That's it.
