So, it’s been really really cold lately. I hear the it’s that way across the nation and some media outlet or other has termed this the “Polar Vortex.” Anyway, my response to this is to make lots of soups and stews.


2 lbs beef stew meat

3 large potatoes

1 12ounce bag of frozen mixed veggies(you could also use canned, just adjust the water amounts)

1 medium onion

6 tbs or 2 packages brown gravy mix

2 cups water

Here’s a tip when using a Crock Pot, buy the liners. You can find them next to the oven bags. They save you a ton of time on clean up. I also apologize in advance for the missing photos. I have no idea what happen to all of the photos that I took.
