Hello my name is Sandy and I am a busy mom……….
I have trouble getting a good dinner on the table, every night. I am a working mom, I am tired at night, I don’t feel like cooking. I need help, I need support…….
My one key to survival appears to be the trusty, old crock-pot. I came home yesterday to the smell of beef stew simmering in the crock pot. I just had to throw some good ole Pillsbury biscuits in the oven, cut up some apples and oranges and instant dinner. Total prep time about 5 minutes. 🙂 But I need more, QUICK ideas for the crock pot. I am posting the yummy, but simple beef stew recipe. I think it’s so important for busy families to sit and have dinner together each night. So if you can offer any tips I will be thankful! Check out this earlier post to see more on the importance of eating together!
10 med. white or red potatoes
fresh carrots – whatever amount you want
1 small onion
2 lbs. beef stewing cubes
1-2 stalks of celery
1-2 cans of beef broth
1 can tomato soup
salt and pepper
Throw in crock-pot, and enjoy 6-7 hours later!! 🙂
Please leave a comment if you have a QUICK crock pot idea or a QUICK meal idea. Pretty please………I want to be a sane, normal functioning mom. 🙂 Proud mom of S.O.D! (Save Our Dinnertime!!)
