Garage Sale Stew, a slow cooker recipe

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

This simple pot of sausage and bean stew is so good. It is simple and would even be fun to make while camping, yes this is adapted for a slow cooker, but imagine how delicious over an open fire.....

This is the second time we have made this and it is perfect for coming home after work, tired and hungry. All you need to is heat and eat! Add a glass of wine, some bread and butter along with some fresh fruit for a perfect weekday dinner. We hope you enjoy this as much as we did!
