Baby It's Cold Outside

It's a tad nippy out right now and they're calling for a blizzard within the next 24 hours, so I've got our supper cooking in the slow cooker.  I really enjoy using our slow cooker, especially when the holidays have us running around so much, which doesn't leave me much time to cook.  But with the slow cooker, I just start it in the morning and it's ready by supper time. 
Here's what's cooking in my pot today:
Day-Off Stew
2 pounds beef stew meat, cut into 1 inch cubes
2 tablespoons canola oil (or any other cooking oil you'd like to use)
8 medium carrots, sliced
6 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 to 1-1/2 cups water
1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce
1 envelope onion soup mix

In a skillet, brown meat in oil; drain.  Transfer meat to slow cooker.  Top with vegetables.  Combine water, tomato sauce and soup mix in a bowl; pour over meat and vegetables.  Cover and cook on low for about 5 hours.

It smells really good right now.  I'm pretty sure there will be leftovers for lunch tomorrow.


The Journey Begins

Hi and welcome to my blog about the ramblings of family life, frugality, cloth diapering, crafty tips and so much more.  My husband and I have 4 children, ages 9, 7, 4 & 18 months.  So trying to save money is a big deal in our family. 
We use cloth diapers on our little one, so you'll be seeing many things about cloth diapering and many cloth diapering products.
I make my own soaps and bath and body products, so be on the lookout for some giveaways.
I also am always on the search for different ways to save money, so I'll be posting a lot of deals and coupons as I find them.
I also try to buy from Hand Made & Work At Home businesses as much as possible, so I'll be more than happy to post reviews of many of the wonderful products that I try.

So now our adventure begins.....
