Winter comfort food homestyle

Breaking in the new kitchen as the weather starts growing colder seemed like a good idea on this bleak May day. There is nothing like a fresh slow cooked lamb and vegetable soup with freshly baked herb bread to help ward off the chill. It took 6 1/2 hours all up including cooking time (well they don’t call it a slow cooker for nothing), 30 minutes prep, 6 hours for the soup in the slow cooker, 2 1/2 hours for the bread to bake. This was a test to see if I can throw everything together before work and have dinner waiting for me when I arrive home.

Success! Now I just have to put the soup in pyrex dishes for lunches next week….. I love my slow cooker and bread maker.
