Crockpot Corned Beef & Cabbage

The classic St. Patrick’s Day dinner.  I am not the biggest fan of it but Chris loves it, so we had it.  It actually turned out better than I expected, and we *might* make it more than once a year now - I really liked it!
I used this recipe from allrecipes.com as a guide.

1 medium onion, sliced
4 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered
6-8 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
3 cups water
1 bay leaf
2 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 teaspoon pepper
1 -3 lb. corned beef brisket with spice packet
1 medium head cabbage, cut into wedges

Combine water, sugar, vinegar, pepper, bay leaf, and spice packet, stir until well dissolved.
Place onions, potatoes, and carrots in the bottom of the slow cooker.  Add beef and cover with liquid ingredients.  Top with cabbage. 
(Certainly not the most glamorous!)

Cook on low for 8-10 hours (we were close to 10 hours this time).
Make sure to remove the bay leaf before serving!
It was delicious :)
