Dainty Ham in the Crockpot


Hello Fellow Food Adventurers,

So for the past few months we haven't been eating meat during the work week, strictly vegetarian for dinner. On the weekends we would splurge, have a pizza eat chicken or seafood all that good stuff.
So the other night, right before I went grocery shopping Alan sat me down and asked if we could be carnivores this week. He looked at me with sweet puppy eyes and ask if we could have "that little ham that I made before." So of course I dug into my recipes and threw this baby in the crockpot because who has time to make dinner anymore! 

Enjoy!
