Meal planning success!


Tonight’s dinner was DELICIOUS!  So delicious in fact that I was so ready to eat after my run that as soon as Mike walked in the door I served dinner… we ate and I never got the chance to take any pics:(!

Slow Cooker Fajita Stew


•               2-1/2 lbs. boneless beef top round steak ( I used two nice size pieces of filet                         mignon

•               1 onion, chopped

•               4 cloves garlic, minced

•               14 oz. can diced tomatoes, undrained

•               1 oz. envelope fajita seasoning mix

•               1/2 red bell pepper, cut into 1″ pieces

•               1/2 green bell pepper, cut into 1″ pieces

•               1/4 cup flour

•               1/4 cup water


Trim excess fat from beef and cut into 2″ pieces. Combine with onion and garlic in a 4-5 quart slow cooker. Mix together fajita seasoning mix and undrained tomatoes and pour over beef. Place peppers on top. Cover crockpot and cook on low for 7-9 hours until beef is tender.

Combine flour with water in a small bowl and stir well to mix. Add gradually to crockpot and stir well. Cover slow cooker and cook on high for 15-20 minutes until thickened, stirring occasionally. Serve stew with hot cooked rice.

This recipe was even a hit with the hubby (who is not easy to please).  He even said he “thinks” he may be developing a taste for peppers….. I immediately felt his forehead to make sure he wasn’t sick!  Hey, dinner… no dinner if I can get my husband to add another vegetable in his diet then I have succeeded!

Hope everyone had a great Monday!  Now its time for A&E’s Intervention…
