Before I can settle down to making pillowcases I must first get dinner in the slow pot. I don’t want to stop and waste valuable sewing time this afternoon to make dinner.
This is where the Slow Pot comes in handy. After breakfast, I took a few minutes to throw some ingredients in to make Beef Stew. I’m using a Reynolds Slow Pot Liner to make dinner clean up quicker.
- Cut some Potatoes
- Dice some Carrots
- Throw in some Onions, Celery & Garlic
Add in some Seasonings: Salt/Pepper & Lipton Onion Soup with some flour and shake up the beef cubes (with the soup mix I rarely add additional salt). Finally, poured in some stock from cooking vegetables last week. If I didn’t have any left-over vegetable or chicken stock, I would add a 32 oz. carton of low sodium chicken or beef stock.
Then I pulled out some frozen green beans to thaw and will add them when I stop for lunch.
Set the Slow Pot for 8-1/2 hours on Low. The house will smell so good!
I even cut up some additional carrots & celery for snacking on while I sew.
Now to fix me a bottle of lemon water and we’re ready to get started.
