One of my favorites, this is easy, cheap and delicious.
5 small packages of dried beef or one large package, chopped
1/2 can of sweet peas
4 cups of milk
1 stick of butter
1/2 cup of flour
In a dutch oven, large frying pan or a wok-like pan (this is what I use) melt the butter over medium heat. Add flour and stir together until smooth. Add milk all at once and stir with a whisk frequently until thick. Don't let it scorch. Add spices and Worcestershire to desired taste . I usually eyeball it, probably about 1/4 tsp of each spice and a tablespoon of Worcestershire. Stir in peas. Serve over toast, mashed potatoes or boiled potatoes. My favorite is over boiled potatoes, skin on! Enjoy!
I'm probably just your average mom, but sometimes I do feel like Super Mom. I'm a licensed daycare provider, working at home, caring for my own two children and a handful of others. I have an extensive past in sales and marketing, which I enjoyed except for the "working for someone else" part.
I'm a family girl, so family always comes first. I enjoy outdoor recreation, blogging, couponing, shopping, cooking, crafts, and more. I try to squeeze it all in between childcare, bills, dishes, laundry, shopping, paperwork, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. Sometimes its a tight squeeze, but I'm loving life, one day at a time!
