Stay in Bed Stew: Perfect on a Cold Day!

It’s finally cooling off down here in Florida! All though, next week will most likely bring warm weather! It’s a little difficult to get used to the weather since the temperatures fluctuate so much! So, for now, this meal is perfect to keep us Floridians warm!! Oh how I miss all four seasons though!

Now, as my mom always says, this recipe is great because you throw all the ingredients in a big pot (a.k.a. Dutch oven), stick it in the oven, and walk away (for a good 5 hours)! The smell is wonderful!

Now for those who have no clue what "stay in bed" stew is, it is a delicious, hearty beef stew with potatoes, carrots, onions, green beans, and peas that cook in a sauce of tomato soup and cream of mushroom soup. To make the stew a little juicier, a can of diced tomatoes are added to the mix. Yum!

Of course this is well worth the 5-hour wait! The stew was yummy as ever! The dumplings (thanks to Bisquick) pair perfectly with the stew because they soak up all of the juice! Delish!!
