Got up a bit earlier today to prepare dinner for tonight. Just that extra 15 minutes, allowed me to make the kids’ breakfast and lunches, prepared dinner, and make a tray of jello for this weekend’s carnival! What a difference 15 minutes make! Don’t get me wrong, the carrots, onion and potatoes were precut last night.

First layer I have carrots, 1 onion, and potatoes. Then top it with oxtail, garlic and bay leave. For the oxtail, I boiled it first with hot water (5 minutes)) to remove the beef blood and residues. Mix 1/3 of tomato paste, 2 tablespoons all purpose flour, 3 tablespoons of basalmic vinegar, salt and ground pepper with 3 cups of water. Pour it in the slow cooker, turn it HIGH and you’ll come home with a pot of fragrant oxtail stew!


Love it when i come home, and dinner is ready!
