1 (16oz) package Great Northern White Beans
2 cups cubed ham (I used leftover ham) OR use 1 ham hock
8 cups water
1 carrot, chopped
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 teaspoons salt or to your taste
Fresh Ground Pepper

Wash beans and the place in crockpot with all ingredients. Cook on high 4-5 hours. (I don't add salt until the beans are cooked or it can result in tough beans).

Broccoli Cornbread

10 oz. pkg. frozen chopped broccoli, thawed
8 ½ oz. Jiffy cornbread mix
4 oz. shredded Cheddar cheese
½ cup margarine, melted
½ t. salt
½ t. garlic powder
¼ t. ground red pepper
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 medium onion, chopped

Press broccoli between paper towels to remove excess water. Combine cornbread mix and remaining 7 ingredients; stir well. Stir in broccoli (mixture will be thick). Pour into a greased 8 inch square pan. Bake 375 degrees 25-30 minutes. Let cool slightly and cut into squares. A Seay favorite. Even Robyn eats this and gets the benefit of eating broccoli. This is almost too good!

Tuna Casserole from here

Chicken-fried Chops

½ c. flour
2 t. salt
1/1/2 t. ground mustard
½ t. garlic powder
6 pork loins, ¾" thick, trimmed
2 T vegetable oil
1 can reduced fat cream of chicken soup
1/3 c. water

In a shallow bowl, combine flour, salt, mustard and garlic powder; dredge pork chops. In skillet, brown the chops on both sides in oil. Place in a slow cooker. Combine soup and water; pour over chops. Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours or until meal is tender. If desired, thicken pan juices and serve with the chops.

2 c. thawed Cool Whip Lite Whipped Topping, divided
