Sometimes, life is busy.
Some days are REAAALLLLLY busy.
Other days are….just regular busy.
However busy your life is currently,
this Beef Stew is going to make dinner time a
flavorful and tasty,
tummy’s full and happy
kind of event.
That. Is something to be grateful for.
Dinner waiting and ready in the Crock Pot…
…a small, but enjoyable blessing, in deed.
The recipe below calls for all of your standard root vegetables…carrots, potatoes, onions. However I would imagine that some sliced mushrooms would also be delicious.
