So, I’ll admit…. I don’t cook.

It’s not that I don’t like to cook, it’s just that…. well, lets just say depression took away my love for cooking a number of years ago.

I, however have a freezer full of meat.  Meat I’ve gotten on clearance, that I buy & throw in the freezer when I get home, because I keep hoping my love for cooking will come back.  I really have been hoping to want to start cooking again.

I pulled some meat out of the freezer, and it happened to be stew meat.

Hmmmm…. Well, what is there to do with stew meat besides making stew?

So, I decided to make stew.  In the crock pot. Now personally, I don’t like stew, but Mr. SnuggleBunny does.  I have no clue why I bought the meat in the first place.  But, why the hell not.

I found a simple recipe on AllRecipes.com, one of my favorite recipe sites.  It was a simple recipe.  I cooked it as is without tweaking anything.
