I had a good laugh this morning..... Kathleen came sliding into the room using an Italian accent and wearing these:
She was also an angel for the errands I needed to run, so that really helped my day! :-)
Thought I'd share another slow cooker meal.
Swiss Steaks with carrots
2 lbs lean beef round steak, cut 1 " thick
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
1 rib celery chopped
2 carrots peeled, pared and chopped
1/4 cup onions,chopped
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 cups whole tomatoes
1/2-1 cup low-sodium tomato juice
1/2 cup grated, low fat, low sodium American cheese (optional)
1. Cut steak into six serving pieces. dredge in flour mixed with salt. Place in slow cooker.
2. Add chopped vegetables and Worcestershire sauce
3. Pour tomatoes over meat and vegetables
4. Cover. Cook on low 7-10 hours
5. Just before serving sprinkle with grated cheese if desired.
Those of you that read this and know me personally, know I don't eat any red meats and little other meats. But I still cook it for Jerry and Hayley to enjoy. Kathleen does not like anything mixed! LOL
Thanks to everyone who has left such heartfelt comments and for all your prayers! I can't tell you how much it means to me!
