Slow Cooker Shredded Beef

I just received my Whats Cooking magazine from Kraft Canada and was flipping through it and found this awesome recipe for Slow Cooker Italian Shredded Beef Sandwich! (check out their original recipe and so many more!).
I have had shredded pork and chicken before but never thought I could do the same with beef! I tore out the recipe to use later and finally got a chance the other morning.
I knew my family would not like all the ingredients listed in their recipe so I had to change it up a bit and added some of my own ingredients.
It was delicious! I have never tasted something so delicious and tender. I had mine on a bun and my children ate it on rice.
Here is what I did with the recipe:
– 2lbs of stewing beef
– 1 onion finely chopped
– 1 can of diced tomatoes
– 1 can of tomato paste
– 1 tsp of garlic powder
– 1 tsp of salt
– 1 tsp of black pepper
– 4 hamburger buns
1) Place stewing beef, onion, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, garlic powder, salt and pepper into slow cooker.
2) Cook on low for ten hours. Shred the beef with a fork.
3) Place on hamburger buns and enjoy!

As a side note, this tasted delicious the next morning mixed in with scrambled eggs on toast! Such a versatile meal – can use it on sandwiches, rice or with eggs!.

ABC Friday – K is for KISSES!!

It’s time for ABC Friday Photo Share at Mom vs the Boys and Maple Leaf Mommy!
This week – K is for KISSES!!!

This picture was taken of my eldest and myself on my wedding day! It was four years ago and looking at the pictures even today brings a smile to my face.
We were able to share such an important moment in our life with him (he still refers to our wedding song as OUR song!). He is starting to get to the age where giving kisses is not too cool and I have to get goodbye kisses in the car (definitely not in the playground at his school!).
Kisses from my children honestly make everything stressful in life feel so much better!
