Missed my post yesterday. I worked in Decatur, but it was a short and sweet (like me) depo. Then the girl who helped get me into court reporting came over to help me with a new computer program that I've been dying to get working. We started working on it at 12:30 and she went home at 6 o'clock. We couldn't get it working just right, but she was so determined and I'm so thankful she was. She finally got it to do what it was supposed to do. Today I'm a happy girl.
Even though we were working (well, technically I was just observing), I did manage to make supper last night. That's right. You did read that correctly. I cooked supper last night. And I must say, it was the easiest meal I've ever made. It was called Burgundy Beef Tips and it was all cooked in the crockpot. Wanna know how I made it? Okay. Here you go. It's a recipe I cut out of the paper several years ago. I organized my recipe book Sunday, so now I can find things. I've got some awesome recipes. Maybe I'll cook more often. . . Maybe not.
BURGUNDY BEEF TIPS
2 pounds beef tenderloin, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 (8 ounce) package sliced Portobello mushrooms
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup dry red wine
1 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Stir all ingredients together in a lightly greased slow cooker. Cook on high for four hours. Stir occasionally if you can.
Next time, I might add a little more mushroom soup. I wanted more gravy, so I added a little water. Then the gravy seemed a little thin, so I had to add the water/flour thickening. I'd also probably add more mushrooms. We ate it over rice. This recipe is a keeper.
Suz and her family are at the beach, you know. She sent me this picture last night on my cell phone.
It's Eli with a hat-wig on. I thought it was so funny and wanted to share it with y'all. They're having a grand ol' time jumping waves and playing in the pool. As you can see from the picture, it looks like the T-shirt shops still have the same cheesy airbrush designs they've had since 1980. Oh, well, they're fun to get. Suz saves all of her kids' airbrush shirts. I think she should make a quilt top from them when they get older. That'd be great except that she doesn't sew.
