If you are like me after a long day of classes and studying or a long day on the wards the last thing you want to come home and do is cook! If you do want to cook when you get home and you are not dead tired then hats off to you, but for those who don’t, I am with you. Lol. My best friend gave me her crockpot recipe for beef stew and guess what it’s all under $25, so for those on a budget don’t worry this will not break the bank!
