cooking now

So after much thought and since I am Full time SAHM/ student now I told my husband that I would try to cook atleast 3-4 times a week. I feel as though not only will that take some burden off of him to come home and then cook after a long day . Plus I am a pretty decent cook I am finding out and this could be fun. I also do not want jeremiah assuming that we will be going out to get some fast food dinner every night when mommy and daddy can both cook. I can follow directions, I can improvise and now I am going to write about my cooking experiences in my journal.

Yesterday I made Beef Tips and brown rice with gravy. It was so tasty . Here is the recipe that was used and I will tell you where I added or took away:
1 1/2 pound sirloin tip roast, trimmed of visible fat - sliced into 1/2 inch cubes
1 packet beefy onion soup mix
1 can (10 ounce size) cream of chicken soup
1 can (15 ounce size) reduced-sodium beef broth
4 1/2 cups cooked long grain rice

Place beef cubes into prepared crock pot.

Stir in remaining ingredients.

Cover and cook on slow cooker for 7 to 8 hours.

Serve over cooked rice.

I added an extra can of cream of chicken soup so that the gravy would be thicker without me having to add flour or cornstarch. Also make sure you use the reduced-sodium broth and soup otherwise it will be salty. The meat was tender, flavorful, and the brown rice added an extra twist to it. I would recommend this recipe found on the cdk website and I will be using it again It was so good that my husband called my grandma to make sure she didn't come cook it herself lol. Ofcourse she didn't I did and I am proud of me! My husband had two plates and took some to work this morning for lunch. My 9 month old seemed to enjoy it too, well from the little bit we gave him from our plates lol.

Today I am making Au Gratin Chicken Bake and I will update later on the response from that dish.
