Finally Friday

IT's finally Friday! It's gettimg hard for me to think of things to write about. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I bought a new CROCKPOT and it didn't cook the food properly. My split pea soup was still crunchy after 8 hours cooking. I e mailed CROCKPOT company. They are sending me a new crockpot. Albeit by mule 6-8 weeks, but at least they are sending me a new one. It pays not to be complacent.


2 pounds beef cubes
1 tsp minced garlic

4 large carrots, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 pound red potatoes, cut into quarters.
1 med red pepper, chopped.

1can diced tomatoes, undrained

1/4 cup floor

1can tomato paste.
1cup beef broth

1) brown off beef with a teaspoon of minced garlic
2) add beef, and veggies to slow cooker .
3) pour tomatoes over the top.
4) make a slurry of the tomato paste, broth, and flour and pour into slow cooker.
5) season with salt, pepper, and thyme.

Stir mixture . Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours or until meat is done.


Tomato paste os about .52 at Costco. It is .50 at grocery outlet. Red peppers are .50 at grocery outlet.

Beef is on sale at Safeways. You have to cut your own cubes.

Canned tomatoes are on sale this week. Note the range of prices.

I buy better than bouillon at Costco. A jar lasts a long time in the refer.
