I found this recipe on Ring Around the Rosies. I'm really excited about it because it uses fresh vegetables, a bag of beans (canned have so much sodium), and is so simple to make! This recipe is for 2-gallon size ziplock bags to freeze for later, or cook one now and freeze the other for later. I love that this helps take prep work out of a day when I have fewer spoons!
Lazy Day Stew
4lb cubed stewing beef
4 cups baby carrots
4 cups baby red potatoes (cut in half)
2 medium onions, chopped

2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 15 oz can tomato sauce (1/2 in each bag) - low sodium
2 cup water
2 Tbs brown sugar
Follow directions above, and put everything into two one gallon freezer bags, shake it up, seal, label and put in the freezer. Instructions for Bag: Cook on low 8 hours, Eat as a soup, or serve over hot noodles or rice. She adds a little bit of shredded cheese on top.
