Shipwreck Stew

Last night's dinner was shipwreck stew. I found this crockpot recipe on the internet, but now I can only find numerous other variations so I can't link to the recipe. The version I use is very, very simple to throw together, and all four of us enjoy it (we'll gloss over the fact that one daughter picks out the potatoes and her sister picks out the beans, and then they swap!). It makes a good winter warmer, and the recipe can easily be doubled or trebled to cater for a large family or guests.

Ingredients (Serves 4)
1 lb / 500g minced beef (hamburger?)
1 onion, chopped
2 or 3 large potatoes, cubed
1 can kidney beans, including liquid
1 can condensed tomato soup

Method
Brown the mince and onion.
Put all ingredients in crockpot and stir well.

That's all there is to it! I cook it on high for 4 hours, though the recipe says low for 4-5 hours - my crockpot would need a lot longer than this on the low setting. I serve it with a green vegetable.

Honey is a common ingredient of natural skin care products.

Why bother going to the department store when
everything you need is right in your kitchen. In addition to the honey, the Organic
Purifying Masque contains rooibos tea extract, aloe juice, jojoba oil,
vitamin E, oat extract, rosemary, and neem oil (don't ask on that last one; it's a plant, that's all I know.

This is a recipe for a Belgian waffle that is truly a sweet, sumptuous and nutty concoction.
A bonus is that it can be stored upright to save storage space.

The Crock-Pot Duo is perfect for entertaining and
having the two slow cookers that adjust independently of each other.

I highly recommend the Crock-Pot Cook Carry Countdown
Slow Cooker as a great slow cooker that any household would be
grateful to have. Move any flammable objects
away from the slow cooker.

Additionally, it resulted in skin irritation at the
site that cleared after two days of treatment with over-the-counter
antibiotic ointment. Although I have pretty thick facial
hair, no problem at all with Braun Series 7. You can expect a clean, close shave when
you use the Norelco 7310xl electric shaver.

I can't overstate how critical it is to maintain proper tire pressure for your car. Probably it is not as easy as if dirt bike games, but it is by all odds something that may be done in your yard. Several strain controls can be operated with all brands of compressors and can come with visible contacts, enough room for wiring with numerous openings and holes.

One minor drawback is that the radiator does get quite hot.
It only takes a second for a child or pet to receive a serious
burn. Are you thinking about building or remodeling your home but
want to do it in an environmentally friendly way.

The Prestyl heating panels come in two by two foot or
two by four foot panels that can easily be hung on the wall or used as ceiling panels.
I was surprised simply because I suspected the Amish built premium products.
On a $200 a month gas bill, this would lower the bill by $50.

These exercises will build up muscles in the thigh and buttocks.

Myth 1: One needs a good exercise to get 'lower abs'. Preventing repetitive stress injuries through exercise
will also help prevent this kind of problem on the job.

It was small enough to get into all the small hard-to-clean places.
