Craft Links with Vegie Stew on the Side

Blogged under Around the Web by Tammy on Sunday 29 August 2010 at 2:18 pm

I’m not much of a meat eater, but I love this stew we make from time to time. It is also a great way to use up any leftover veggies in the frig, and you can freeze any leftovers of it (if you have any). I don’t eat the meat, just the vegetables, carrots, green beans, onions, and carrots, and then add some of the gravy over it. Basically, you put a piece of meat (like a pot roast) in a crock pot along with all the vegetables and a packet or two (depending on how much is in there) of onion soup mix. Let it cook away until the meat is done. If you have time, considering searing the meat before putting it in there because it will add some extra juice/gray stuff. Okay, onto my weekend crafting links:
