No-Stress Beef Stew

Yesterday I started taking inventory of all the food prep I have to do for Christmas and then second-Christmas and then New Year's and beyond. I started thinking of my food assignments in the coming weeks...and I suddenly lost all motivation to cook dinner. Sorry fam.

If you're ever having a day where you're kinda feeling like that too, here's a really easy way to put something on the table, thank you random person on Pinterest:

No-Stress Beef Stew

Stew meat chunks
1 packet each: Ranch Dressing, Italian Dressing and Brown Gravy 
2 cups water
Veggies -- I had carrots and potatoes, frozen peas and frozen pearl onions

Toss it all in the slow cooker, cook on high for 6 hours. (I added the peas in the last hour.) Serve.

Aaand she's back!

This is seriously almost too good to be this easy.


  1. I love pinterest and this looks so good! I'm with you, except for my fun party assignments I've been uninspired to cook. In fact, we've been eating a lot of food out of our freezer since that means I don't have to make yet another trip to the store. But I'll be adding this one to my weekly menu!
