I decided that I would go grocery shopping today, so that I wouldn't have to do so on Sunday night and get all grumpy about it. I figured out about seven evenings worth of meals and made sure to get the ingredients. As a part of this, I went on the Weight Watchers website and grabbed a couple recipes. While the baby was napping, I put away all the groceries and started dinner. Tonight we are having:

Middle Eastern "Lamb" Slow Cooker Soup (Lamb in quotes because I substituted beef)

1 lb lean lamb (in my case 1 lb flank steak) cut into cubes
1/2 cup canned beef broth
1 large onion, chopped
1 large garlic clove, minced
14 1/2 oz canned diced tomatos, undrained
15 oz canned garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
2 tsp. ginger root, freshly grated
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp table salt
1/3 tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

Place "lamb" in a 5-quart slow cooker. Add remaining ingredients, except lemon juice, stir well. Cover and cook on LOW setting for 7 hours.

Stir in lemon juice and let stand for five minutes for flavors to blend. Yields about 1 and 1/2 cups per serving. Serve in bowls.

It also mentions that if you want to tints the stew gold you can add a pinch of saffron threads. Surprisingly enough, Kroger does not sell those.
