Today is the first day of my new career.................
A chance to SLOW down.
Well, not really. Just redirect my energy to things that are important to me. A balance between work and life.
But a chance to use my SLOW cooker anyway.
This time for some beef stew. This was really good. And simple.
The grass fed, hormone free beef (thanks Baba C) was super tender. And the "gravy" was nice and thick.
The whole family enjoyed this. Well, almost. I'm sure yours will too!
