Kielbasa and Potatoes

I came home tonight and did not feel like cooking.  However, I was home relatively early and wanted to make something.  When I get home early enough, I want a meal.  I decided that from here on out, Thursdays will be a slow-cooker night.  I have enough time to prep before I leave for work/school and it can be ready as soon as I walk in the door!

This recipe is the true definition of a "meat and potatoes" meal.  Ron really enjoyed it.  It was extremely quick and easy to prepare.  It was hearty and good!  I served with some broccoli (for myself) and some grain bread.
