Not Thinkin' Straight Thursday

It's been so hectic lately and I think my brain's on overload. One more meeting tonight and then tomorrow is a break. I did forget to tell y'all in yesterday's recipe that you need to bake it at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. And, I wouldn't recommend the 13x9 pan, it needs to be bigger. My oven did not appreciate the mess I made last night. But on a better note, look at all the buttons our friend Debbie in Warner Robins, Georgia recently found at a yard sale! She certainly hit the button jackpot. She is very creative and I know she'll think of all sorts of wonderful ways to use them. I hope she shares some pictures of the things she comes up with too. Debbie, I have real button envy.

Here's the recipe for tonight's menu. I don't think I've given it to you before, but then again, you have to remember the title of my post today. It's one of those "How can it be so simple but taste so good?" recipes. Enjoy!

Beef Tips in Mushroom Gravy
2 lbs. beef stew meat
2 envelopes onion soup mix
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 c. water

Place meat in slow cooker. Combine remaining ingredients; pour over beef. Cover and cook on low 7-8 hours. Serve with rice. Serves 6.

This reminds me of one of Meredith's classics. She has been raised in our Vintage Blossoms Club. One Day she and I had the floor full of jars pretty buttons. I saw the light bulb and a sly smile and she said Granny, you have lots of buttons, you are very rich! I knew she was thinking of material wealth, but I was thinking of her and her brothers, so I answered, Yes Meredith, Granny is very rich indeed.
