hamburger soup

1 lb hamburger (browned and drained)
The following cans are added, juice and all:
1 can green beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can mixed veggies
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can chicken broth

As you can see, this can be played around with quite a bit. Have fun!

If stress could burn fat, I'd be skinny and if chocolate could add brain cells, I'd be a genius!

These are all good sites for recipes. Check out www.recipegoldmine.com too. They've got a lot of great recipes, and as I recall there's an entire section of the site that's dedicated to slow cooker (crockpot) recipes.

There was much rejoicing!
