But he who is of a merry heart has a continual feast. Proverbs 15:15b

Fall his here! To me that means snuggly blankets, slipper socks, yoga pants and comfort food(hence the need for the yoga pants). Fall also means that school activities are in full swing and the evenings are packed with homework, practices, and various other seasonal events. Those two things do not have to be at odds!
Today I want to share a quick crockpot recipe that my mother-in-law introduced me to. She calls it Frantic Stew. You can easily throw it together as you leave in the morning, and enjoy this warm, comfort food when you get home from your busy day. No chopping required! I have tried several variations of this recipe, but this is the one I like the best.
- stew meat
- dry onion soup mix
- beef broth
- cream of mushroom soup
Combine stew meat, soup mix, beef broth. Add water if needed to cover the meet. Cook all day on low in the crockpot. About a half hour before dinner, add the cream of mushroom soup.
Serve over rice.
Even my daughter who is a picky eater LOVES this stew. If you wanted to add veggies, I sure you could.
