Last week I was one of the lucky recipients of Nancy's b'day giveaway over at Victorian Motto's blog and I received my package over the weekend. This is the awesome package I won.
It's Crockpot Beef Stroganoff. Super dee duper easy! I've been using this recipe for over 25 yrs. and I've tweaked it just a bit over the yrs. to suit our growing family.
2 small cans of Cr. of Mushroom soup - (I get the fat/free or less fat kind)
2 small cans of Cream of Celery soup
1- 2 lbs. of beef stew meat cut into bite size pieces
(feeds about 6 or so)
Spray the inside of the crockpot w/cooking spray. Throw in the stew meat, then add all the cans of soup. Mix well and cook on low for 6 -8 hrs. (you may need to stir it once it's cooked for a few hrs.)
Serve over rice or noodles. (I always use the extra wide noodles, and after draining them, I just add them into the crock & mix). Easy peasy!! It's also a great company dish. All I add are some rolls to go along w/it.
I receive my books for free from Bethany House Publishers, in exchange for an honest review.
'Into the Whirlwind' by Elizabeth Camden is one of the most fascinating historical Christian romance novels I've ever read. The story wraps around the famous Chicago Fire back in 1871. The author does a remarkable job of making sure you get an extensive history lesson of that time era, but in a very personal/interesting way. The story draws you in from the beginning and lasts till the very end, w/lots of twists and turns throughout. I really enjoyed all the characters, both the main ones as well as the secondary ones. The author gives an amazing account into the lives of the people who survived that tragic fire and tried to rebuild their beloved city.
I personally would have liked to have seen more mention of the characters' love of God and their growing faith in Him, which usually runs foremost in Christian fiction, but in this book it was only stated very few times throughout. Other than that, Elizabeth Camden did an amazing job and I learned a ton of information in a delightful way!
It is filled w/Godly advice and Biblical wisdom, paralleling Joseph's life and how he remained happy even tho' going through the toughest of times. I hope to remember everything I learned from this book for the rest of my life. Highly highly recommend!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
