A New Year and new healthier living, I will at least try my very best! I have been inspired by the girls at Make Mine Pink to kick myself in the right direction. Below is a recipe I found on halfmysize.com for Beef Stroganoff made in the Crockpot. Easy picy to make and taste really, really good! Thank goodness for the Crockpot, thanks to it we eat home cooked food more or less every day and pretty healthy too!!
Have a great healthy week!

For my Swedish friends, a Crockpot is the best kitchen gadget ever. It’s a electrical pot with a ceramic insert. You just add whatever you are cooking and let it cook away for 4-10 hours deepening what you are cooking, no need to be home or stirring etc, it’s great!!

Helene,
That looks so delicious. I have almost all the ingredients here already. I will be trying it. I agree about the crockpot. What a lifesaver, and everything always tastes good.

Hi Helene,,, That looks really good, I guess I need to get the crock pot out. LOL Its a very good idea for eating at home more. I love the healthy lifestyle thread at MMP also.

Crock pots are the best. I'm going to have to get a smaller size one of these days. Although I do end up with a meal for the freezer using the biggie. The stoganoff looks good, thanks for sharing the recipe.

Looks and sounds yummy!
Thanks for stopping by my blog! I went to the LA market one time and never returned. I'm afraid it didn't quite do it for me either.
