Slow Cooker Recipe Shepherd's Pie Stew {MamaBuzz -}

Sigh, my slow cooker…it's my best friend when the weather starts to get a little chilly and days start to get insanely busy due to the holidays, school stuff, appointments, work meetings, or whatever else happens during the course of a week.

I'll freely admit it…My name is Mel and I love my slow cooker.

I don't know if I could live without my slow cooker. It makes such delicious things and only requires a minimal amount of work from me to do so.

It's better than a Rosie (am I dating myself here? Jetsons?). It's better than chocolate (wait, maybe not). It's definitely better than slaving over a hot stove after a loooooonnnnngggg day, can I get an amen?

  1. I make this on purpose with shepherd’s pie leftovers. I hadn’t thought about making it from scratch. Looks good. However, I think I’ll stick to gravy. I tried using pasta sauce in shepherd’s pie once and got a lot of complaints.

  2. That accident sounds really good. I love to use my slow cooker too. When I worked, I used it at least three times a week. Now that I am retired, I use it just about as often. Even though I have more time, things just taste so good when cooked in a slow cooker.
