Crockpot Beef Stroganoff...and Other Stuff.

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's my version:

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.      


When I walked into my bedroom last night, this is what I found...
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. 

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.". Jeremiah 29:11

I do not do crock pots, the last time I used one and left food alone, I came back to a burnt glob of sauce, lol. Tag is so sweet, he just misses you when you are out.

The recipe looks great and I love that picture of Tag getting ready for bed.
I like your little quilt too.
Have a nice week, I can't wait for your sale.
