The best part about the election is that it is over! YAY! And now we can focus on great recipes!

 So relieved that the election is over – now to focus on some really great recipes!

I was longing for some lamb stew – so I took pieces of lamb already cut into bite sizes, and made a really delicious mixture in my slow cooker – and voila – the next morning it was ready to go! Truly delicious – enjoy!


  • 2 lbs of stew lamb cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 large red onion sliced
  • 2 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 large can of roasted tomatoes in juice
  • 1 large can of white pinto beans
  • I can of kidney beans
  • 1 pint of water or vegetable stock
  • 2 Tbsp of paprika
  • 2 Tbsp of curry powder
  • Lemon pepper to taste
  • Salt to taste


  1. Saute the onions until translucent in the olive oil. Remove and put into the slow cooker which is on high
  2. Saute the lamb in the same pan until browned on all sides.
  3. Add the contents of a large can of roasted tomatoes in sauce to the pan and mix well scraping all the pieces off the pan into the mixture.
  4. Remove all and put into the slow cooker.
  5. Add the rest of the ingredients
  6. Turn the slow cooker onto low if at night before you turn in – or onto high if you are cooking in the afternoon and want the dish for dinner.
  7. I like to do this dish at night – then turn it off the next morning or onto warm – and it will be ready for dinner when you come home from work!
  8. Serve with basmati rice ( throw that into the rice cooker and it will be ready when you are – brown rice works well too!)
  9. Add a green salad with cherry tomatoes and a light lemon juice and olive oil dressing.
  10. I like to add chutney ( Mrs. Balls Mango chutney is a family favorite!)
