I love using my crockpot. It's so nice to come home from work and have my lunch/supper waiting for me. I work 8:00-2:00...right through lunchtime. I get a 15 minute break, but that's not much time to eat lunch. I sometimes remember to take a snack along with me. However, when I forget, or just plain don't think about it, I am beyond hungry by the time I get home. That is when I truly appreciate my crockpot... and great crockpot recipes.
I ran across this recipe on The Thread Catcher's blog. It sounded so good that I just had to try it. I modified it just a tad...here's my version:
CROCKPOT BEEF STROGANOFF
1 pound beef stew meat
salt and pepper
1/4 cup water
1 small onion, diced
1 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can golden mushroom soup
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 12 oz. pkg. egg noodles
Brown meat, add salt and pepper to taste.
Put water, onion, Worcestershire Sauce, and soups into crockpot. Add meat. Cook on low for 8 hours (or high for 5 hours).
About 30 minutes before serving time, cook 1/2 package of noodles. Drain and add to crockpot. Add in the cream cheese, stirring all together. When cream cheese is completely melted (~20 min.), serve.
I didn't get much done yesterday. But, I did get this pin-basted! If I had had the right color thread, it would be at least partially quilted. I'll get at that this week.
And, I watched the movie, "Flight", with Denzel Washington. Great movie...and who doesn't love Denzel!!
I am still getting wool ready to sell. If I get another tote sorted, I will be through half of the totes, and may start listing it next weekend. I will keep you posted.
It looks as if Tag got my side of the bed ready for me to jump into and then took his place. Doesn't it? ~grin~ Just so you know, he really doesn't lay there...his sleeping place is the bottom corner of the bed.
