How to Make Easy Crockpot Stews for Fall
I have many fond memories of delicious, steamy stews after a long, cold day at school.
It is so easy to make, especially if you’re using a crock-pot, and it is a one-dish dinner! Imagine coming home from a hard day’s work, and remembering that you started a crock-pot stew before you left, and it is READY to put on the table for your hungry family! Yum!
