Beef Stew and Homemade Rolls

 How was everyones Holiday?  It was nice to just relax, sleep in, and enjoy family.  HOWEVER...when today came around (kids back to school)...I got a little excited:)  I can clean the house, blog, and bake.

I wanted to share this recipe with you because it is so frigid outside and it is the soup and stew season and it is so easy and sooooo good!  Since it is all thrown in the crockpot, the meat is so tender and the vegetables are just perfect!  As for the rolls. I know that everyone has their own roll recipe and I know you are thinking...mine is the best ever, why would I try Swanky Pears??  Well, I'm not going to try and talk you into making these.  Just know, "Mine is the BEST EVER!" These are my Mom's recipe and she is the BEST.   I learned everything from her!  So...if you don't make these rolls, make some homemade rolls with this stew, it is the perfect combination!  Enjoy!
