Before It Begins–Pillowcase Sew-A-Thon 2015

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.

Happy Stitching!
