Easy Fall Dinner

I am not trying to rush us into cold weather, afterall it was 85 degrees today, but  sometimes you just need that easy winter comfort food.  Who couldn't use an easy dinner for those nights when you have to work late and your children have practice? This recipe gets rave reviews from my 9 and 10 year old live-in food critics.  It is great served with biscuits or cornbread.  You can literally throw everything into the crockpot in the morning and you have a hot delicious meal when you are ready to eat.  Want to add get more veggies in the stew?  Add 1-11/2 cups frozen green beans to the stew 10-15 minutes before serving. This is a basic recipe, but do not be afraid to experiment.

Crockpot Beef Stew

1 lb beef stew meet cut into bite size cubes
1 lb baby carrots, washed
