Spaghetti sauce in the crock pot


Today I have my homemade spaghetti sauce simmering in one of my crock pots.  There really is no defined recipe but here is what is in this batch:

chopped onion
5 or 6 cloves of chopped garlic
ground beef
tomato sauce
large can of tomatoes
tomato paste
small handful of brown sugar
dash or two of ground cinnamon
big splash of red wine
a toss or two of basil
same for oregano
3 or 4 bay leaves
kosher salt

I think that's everything!  I put it all together and plugged in the crock pot a little after 8:00 this morning.

You just can't beat the flavor of food cooked all day in a crock pot!
