What’s For Dinner? Slow Cooked Beef Stroganoff

 Enter to win this week’s Scout Tote Bag Giveaway!


I’ve never tried Beef Stroganoff in our slow cooker before, so I was thrilled to find a simple recipe that made cooking a night of cooking a little simpler at our house!  This was so good, but a wee bit on the pricey for us.  However, it made enough for dinner plus tons of leftovers, so we’ll freeze what we don’t eat tomorrow and then just reheat the meal when we need a quick dinner.  (You can freeze it in plastic bags even with the noodles as long as they’re cooked, then just re-heat and serve!)
