Simply Spuds Steamables – Sweet Potatoes

This was my second purchase of Simply Spuds Steamables, the first were of the Golden Potatoes and the men really liked them.  These Sweet Potatoes are tripled washed, nicely sized and are steamed in the microwave, ready in 8 minutes.  They are great for a quick mid-week meal and when you don’t want to turn on the oven.

Added a little butter, hubby wanted brown sugar but he didn’t need the extra calories

This is definitely going to be a pantry staple.

Hello Friends and Happy Monday, I hope you had an enjoyable weekend.

I had an online weekend…reading and commenting on Blogs…updating status’…tweeting….Instagraming…Sverving…and…creating a Facebook Campaign, “Bloggers4JCPenney“. There were several bloggers who liked the concept and submitted their posts, I hope you’ll check it out and do the same.

Saturday, I received my first Influenster VOXBOX, and will be posting a review later this week. Sunday, I went to church, wore green and cooked CornBeef, Cabbage and Potatoes for St. Patty’s Day. Tomorrow #1 son has an interview at Bank of America, he and I will be meeting his DVR job coach at 1:00.  The job market is tough made even more so when you have a disability so please say a little prayer for him.

We were all hoping for another warm weekend but it seems like ‘ole Man Winter is back for one last hurrah! Wednesday is officially the first day of Spring so I’m mixing in a little bright colors with today’s all black outfit.

Are you planning a special “1st Day of Spring” outfit or will you wait until it gets warmer?

Have a fantabulous afternoon – Smooches!

Hello Friends, I hope you are winding down from a very productive day. Tonight’s dinner was an easy breezy crockpot meal – beef stew.

Ingredients:
Beef (any cut); carrots; potatoes; onion; McCormick Slow Cooker seasoning, water, cooking spray

Spray inside of crock pot with cooking spray or use a crockpot liner; place in beef, you can cube cut it but it becomes so tender it falls apart

Cut carrots, potatoes and onions then place on top of beef

Mix seasoning into 1 1/3 cup of warm water and pour over veggies and beef

I set my crockpot to low, allowing 8 hours of cooking time, placed cover on crockpot and went to work

Returned home to a fully cooked meal and clean up was a breeze (my men did it)!
