Irene's Chicken And Beef Casserole

Slow cookers are cool. This appliance helps you cook warming meals on chilly nights stew beef browning gets you out of the kitchen on hot days. No wonder the popularity of slow cookers is soaring. Slow cookers are available in many sizes, colors, and some are programmable. If you don't have a slow cooker yet you may wish to buy one.

This is a 32 ounce box, containing a bag of frozen slow cooker braised beef brisket strips and a bag of veggies and sauce mix. The box reads "1 skillet + 3 ingredient packages + 15 minutes = Complete Restaurant Style Meal". The box contains over 1 pound of meat, and this is supposed to serve four people.

Pot roast, round roast, sirloin tip, corned beef brisket, and stewing steak are especially good for making beef this way, but you can use pretty much any cut. Trim off any visible fat from the meat before you begin.

There are so many ways to do this, but let's discuss about one particular topic that always seems hectic. Dinner time. Every Sunday I sit with my children (great time to just talk and bond) and we go over cookbooks and recipes that I've collected. (If you don't have a cookbook, go out and get one with slow cooker braising steak, or one for casserole dishes. Great time saver!) We pick out our favorite recipes, throw in a couple of new interesting ones, and then I head to the grocery store to shop for the ingredients of the recipes we've decided on. Late evening Sunday's are a good time for shopping. Notice I wrote that I go. Alone.

Plant deep. Pinch off the bottom 2 or 3 leaves and bury at least to that level. The tomato plant will put out new roots from the stem and you get a stronger plant.

Make use of idle moments. Multitasking is the key to saving time. Arrange your work so that you can do one dish while another one is cooking. While the roast is finishing in the crock pot, why not fix a salad or make a quick dessert? This way, all the dishes will finish at the same time and you can start serving immediately.

However, all over Thailand, you can see ultraviolet lights over insect traps. These families will either eat the insects themselves or sell them on to a dealer. I have also seen people collecting a fly which only comes out at night after rainfall. You can gather thousands in an hour by putting a bowl of water under a street light. The insects become stunned by the lamp braising meat in beer spiral down into the water where they drown.
