Slow Cooker Black Bean and Polenta Stew #SundaySupper

Sunday Supper Movement

I still can’t get over that 2014 is here. It’s already the 4th of January and I’m not really sure what happened to the 1st-3rd!  I’m hoping to slow down the times just a bit.

I love taking the New Year to look back and reflect. Reflect on how I have grown as a person, mom, friend and of course, blogger. Personal achievements and downs. What could I improve on? What could I do better next time? What have I enjoyed? What do I want to accomplish this year and more…

It’s a time to take a step back and relax. Enjoy the slow winter outside and all its beauty. This also means enjoying wintertime foods. Some foods would include: meat, beans, potatoes, greens such as kale and event citrus fruits such as oranges.

By Spring, my husband begs me not to make another bean dish. I just can’t help myself sometimes.

It’s also a great time to bring out the slow cooker! A delicious meal can cook on your counter, while you are at work or running errands. Sit back and relax. Take it slow with some amazing slow cooker meals…

    Sounds like your husband feels about beans the way mine does about lentils. I cook a ridiculous amount of lentils, and I’m sure he’s sick of them! haha. I’ve never thought to serve beans with polenta before, but it looks like a big bowl of goodness! So warming and comforting!
