5 Point Beef Stew

Hello! Tossed this one in the Crock Pot yesterday, I had pre-chopped the vegetables the day before. For about 6 servings, you get 5 Points of a meal, which is pretty good if I may say so. It's ridiculously easy as well.

1 lb cubed, trimmed stew beef
4 medium potatoes, chopped (bite size)
2 cups chopped carrots (bite size)
1 cup mixed soup vegetables
1 can tomato sauce
1 packet Beef Stew seasoning
1 1/3 cup water or broth

Throw it all in the Crock Pot on low for 6-8 hours.

Radio Silence

Hello out there in the Blogiverse! I am so very, very sorry about my negligence with this blog. I got pregnant right after my summer classes ended & that's all she wrote. I couldn't continue on my diet & was too sick to eat anyway for a great portion of it. Halfway through my pregnancy Weight Watchers completely revamped their Points anyway & I will have to relearn the whole system once baby arrives... which should be any day now! So hopefully, by this time next month I will be back on track with the food blogging & we can restart our adventures together!

I would like to note: in the last 2 months of my pregnancy I have begun doing a LOT of slow cookering & have lots of fun (OK, maybe not FUN, but tasty) recipes to share!
