My Dream of Beef & Broccoli
When I got up this morning, I decided I would make beef & broccoli in the crockpot for supper tonight. If you’ve never made it, it’s so worth it!
I went to the store a while ago and picked up some stew beef, which I will split into two, one for tonight, one for another night. I also picked up a package of frozen California mix vegetables, because Safeway didn’t have any packages of just broccoli on sale (hot commodity, I guess). I did not, however, pick up a box of onion soup mix because I had a very vivid recollection of seeing a box in my cupboards somewhere.
I was WRONG! I have a cupboard beside the plates – none there. I have a free-standing two-door cupboard – none there. I have no other stash spots. My heart is broken, my dream of having broccoli and beef – dashed! But wait!
In the free-standing cupboard, I have found poutine gravy mix. Close enough! I have someone coming to pick up a Kombucha SCOBY this afternoon, and I don’t have time to go to the store again. So this will have to do. Besides, what’s more Canadian than beef & poutine gravy? It practically screams good food…..I hope! 🙂
Technically, I suppose dinner is now Beef & California Mixed Vegetables. I will have to work on that title if this becomes a ‘thing’ – it’s a little wordy.
