Everyday Mom's Meals: Birthday Supper

Birthday Supper

 I am a firm believer that everyone should be able to pick whatever he/she wants to eat on his/her birthday. Weather it means they have someone special cook a yummy dinner or go out to a favorite place, we all deserve that on our special day.

And every year on Mr. E's birthday I know exactly what he is going to request for me to make him his beef stroganoff.  Something from his childhood, his mom used to make, that to this day he still loves every bite. Now, I don't have the recipe she used, but years ago I found one that was very similar and simple for me...using one of my best friends in kitchen my crock pot.

 Oh, and it just so happens to be super economical too. It takes an inexpensive cut of beef like round steak and stretches it as far as possible, feeding your entire family on the cheap!

If you have a birthday coming up, be sure  you get exactly what you want for your special birthday supper. Or, if you know someone who loves stroganoff, maybe you could surprise them on their "day all about me" with a big plate of this!
Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff
