Weight Watchers Crock-pot Beef Stroganoff
I have to admit, I had fallen into the rut of making the same few dishes over and over again. Maybe it has to do this the fact that I just wanted to come home after work and make something for the family that didn't involve to much thinking, or maybe, I would rather stick with something I knew, apposed to making something that could be a complete failure and have nothing as a back-up. Whatever the reason was, I had to get out of the funk.
Long story short, I decided it was time to break out the crock-pot, and try a few recipes I had bookmarked. I must say that this was such an easy meal and was a great idea for today. We had so many things that we wanted/needed to do today that it was nice to be able to assemble this meal in the morning and when dinner time rolled around we had our meal made. I will surely keep this recipe and make it again on days that I have a lot going on. I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did! Happy cooking!
