I've been feeling a little better today.  So I decided to make dinner.  Actually, I made dinner last night too, but then only ate about 3 bites.  Being sick sucks.  But tonight I enjoyed dinner.  We had beef stew (crockpot!) and (semi)homemade rolls.

For the beef stew:

In the crockpot, mix together cream of chicken and cheddar cheese soup.  (Original recipe called for cream of mushroom, which I don't like.  So I changed it.)  Add to that one envelope of beef and onion dry soup mix. 

Add the stew meat.  I'm lazy and buy mine pre-chopped.  About 2.5 pounds.

Now add in the carrots and potatoes you've already chopped.  I used 5 potatoes, and 3 MONSTER carrots.  For real, I have never seen carrots so big.  A bag of baby carrots would work just as well, but I needed regular carrots for another meal, so that's what I used.

I almost forgot!  I love onions.  John hates them.  So I add some big chunks that are easy to detect later.  About 1/2 a big onion.

Cook on low, 8-10 hours or on high 4-5 hours.  And presto!

I also made some rolls from a box of hot roll mix.  Just follow the directions on the box and you'll have some delicious homemade rolls!

Nothing like some comfort food on a freezing cold night!
