UPDATED!!! Working Girl Stew!!!


Its been so long since I have posted. Hopefully things will slow down soon and I can start finding time to craft again!

With the COLD COLD weather that we have been having around here (which by the way I would be ok if spring came) I have been craving soups and stews! They just sound YUMMY!!!

When we were growing up my mom would make this stew in the morning, head of to work and it was ready by the time she got home! I went to her house and searched through recipes because I have been wanting it sooooo bad! I finally found it and just have to share it with you.

Working Girl Stew


2lbs stew meat
4 carrots peeled and cut into chunks
4 large potatoes peeled and cut into chunks
1 can tomato sauce
1 bay leaf crushed
1 pkg onion soup mix (updated)
1 can cream of mushroom soup (you can substitute cream of chicken if needed)
1 can cream of celery soup

In large roaster or casserole pan combine all the above ingredients, rinse cans with water and add water to mixutre. Stir lightly.
Cover and bake @ 275 for 5 to 8 hours!
(I don't see why you couldn't do this in a crock pot either, never tried it, but I'm thinking it would work)

This is so yummy after a long day! To come home and have a hot hearty meal all ready to go!
Give it a try and let me know what you think!!
