This delicious Ham, Kale and Navy Bean Stew is served over homey Cheese Grits, and appears on this week’s Slow-Cooker Classic Meal Plan. Our team devoured the leftovers for lunch, and it would freeze perfectly. If you’re interested in learning more about the convenience of year-round slow-cooker cooking, check out the slow cooker meal plan.
The slow cooker eMeals meal plan is priced (though not store specific), feeds a family of 6, and generally costs around $120 per week (or less). That’s only $2.86/person per meal! For those of you with smaller families, there’s also a For Two plan available. The recipes utilize mainstream ingredients, all available at your local grocery store, and appeal to a broad range of tastes and preferences.
