This has been such a sad week as we watch the devesation that has happened in Japan this week. My thoughts and prayers have been with this lovely country and people all week. Lets keep them in our prayers .. it is going to be a difficult period for them.
Not only did we have a wonderful Roast Beef last week that we cooked in my crock pot , but tonight I combined the left overs along with a few other ingredients for a wonderful dinner.
Part soup part stew and unbelievable flavor.
I had planned to save the potatoes for another dinner but as I put the roast beef in the pot and the left over carrots the potatoes just had to be added.
Along with the above we added
1 cup of water
1 can of beef broth
1 can of diced tomatoes .. these were flavored with garlic .. a store brand at half the price of the name brand tomatoes.
I then took a can of mushroom soup and put into a bowl. I then added four large spoons of broth to the soup and combined to thin out the soup. This then was added to the pot of soup/stew.
1/2 cup of quick cooking barley
and a few handfuls of mixed vegetables were added.
Pepper, Lawry salt and a little more garlic to taste and simmered for another 1/2 hour.
Dinner was fantastic .. only thing missing was some garlic bread. We have enough left over for another dinner and maybe a lunch.
I will be sharing this at the following blogs this week..
Stop over to see what others are cooking as I add new links all through the week
Thanks for stopping by.. Lets keep saving together.. Grace
