Quick Slow Cooker Dinner

Using a slow cooker is a great way to save time and money, especially in winter, when stews are awesome.  Coming home to a hot meal that requires no preparation after a long day of work is so so nice.

Quick and easy!  I whipped out these ingredients in the morning - leeks, celery, carrots, and stew meat.  Chop chop chop!

Everything into the slow cooker with some salt and pepper and butter (of course).  Set on low and leave for work!

After work - voila!  Tasty meal for all of 10 minutes of prep work.  I think I set my slow cooker to shut off to the "warm" state after about 8-10 hours.

Here's a picture with the flash in case you don't like the other picture.
