So Stew Me

We all know I’m obsessed I love my crockpot. It’s no secret. Yesterday was no exception. The weather was cool but sunny, I had things to do, and honestly didn’t feel like cooking dinner. I did, however, feel like eating some kind of comfort food. I was in the holiday spirit, so something hot & hearty was what I was craving. Beef stew sounded nice.

I dug up one of these puppies:

I chopped up some veggies I scrounged up from the fridge.
1/2 a bag of baby carrots
1 bunch of celery
2 red potatoes
1 sweet potato
1 onion
1 zucchini

1 3/4c water
2lbs cubes stew meat
1 packet McCormick slow cooker stew mix

Tossed them all into the crock for 4 hours on high.

It looked a bit watery when I checked it out, so I added a bit of flour to thicken it up.

We gobbled it up for dinner, and the lovely dish made an appearance at work with me for lunch! Quick prep, easy, awesomeness. It’s not the most attractive looking meal, but it sure does taste nice!
