Creamy Slow Cooker Beef and Noodles

I have discovered the easiest and tastiest way to make beef and noodles.
Grab your slow cooker!

First up - Happy National Coffee Day!

I just made myself a cup of hazelnut coffee with some sweet vanilla creamer and I'm typing away in a very dark, quiet house.

Personally, the ONLY and BEST time to get anything done around here.

Have you tried my Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice Coffee Creamer yet?  It has gotten some nice reviews and traction online, thanks readers!  I'm also giving away two super cute, fun fall-inspired mugs on my Facebook page today.  What can I say?  I'm happy that Fall has kinda arrived and I'm feeling generous.

Yesterday I declared dinner would be a cold weather meal as we finally turned off the air conditioning and opened up the windows in what seemed about a week.  Of course, it would also be the day that we scheduled to install a new water heater and water softener, therefore I had "company" in my house while trying to cook, take photos, etc.

It was fun.

How do you explain to a 60+ year old repair man that you own and operate a food blog?  What does he think of you when you are standing high on a step stool shooting photos of Campbell's soup cans over your kitchen table with the door wide open for more natural light?

I'm fairly certain he thought I was crazy.

Hey, we all have our talents and mine isn't installing water heaters and by the looks of him, his certainly isn't taking food photos.

In the end our joint work spaces panned out.  He got my laundry room back in working order and I got dinner on the table.  A win-win.

I'm pretty sure I saw everyone's roll back into the head after their first bite of this meal.  I mean, I'll be honest, I think mine did as well.

The flavor is OUTSTANDING.

The roast cooks all day so the meat is fork tender and basically melts in your mouth and the combination of the three soup mixes and makes the most delicious gravy to dribble down those egg noodles and in our case mashed potatoes.

Yes, carbs over carbs.

Feel free to serve as is or even over homemade biscuits, whatever your family likes.  This recipe makes a nice hearty batch, it fed all of us {plus about 3 servings for the husband} and we still have leftovers for tonight.

I'm thinking it will help warm up our bones before we head to the chilly football game tonight.  It'd also be perfect to make when someone is a bit under the weather.  How can homemade beef and noodles not put a smile on your face?

And because I'm sure I'll already get questions...yes, if you don't like mushrooms just leave them out.  

We have one little cherub who loathes them, but I still put them in since the rest of us enjoy them {mean mom here}.  And as for that fat free carton of half and half?  I bought that by mistake {as I'm usually a full-fat girl}, but it ended up working just fine.

So skinny milk or not, use what you like!
