Slow Cooker Beef Stew
May’s going to be a busy month for my DB and me. It’s his 25th birthday, he’ll be finishing up his first year of law school, it’ll be our 4 year anniversary, we’re traveling to Disneyworld, and amidst all of that, we’ll be trying to find new tenants and a new apartment at the same time. A lot of pleasure and a lot of work equals one. hectic. month. Eeeeep!
Here’s another crockpot recipe for you. It has the basics– potatoes, onions, and carrots. I loved using the broth to dip fresh french bread in. I’m not sure where the original recipe came from so if anyone knows, please fill me in so I can give credit. Thanks!
