Slow Cooker Beef Bourguignon

Last I told you about the awesome crock pot meal I stressed about putting together before work. In the end, Mr. J took over prepped all of the ingredients.

The extra 20 minutes of effort in in the morning was well worth the meal we came home to that evening.  We had a decadent Beef Bourguignon smelling up the whole apartment.  

Slicing some bread and spooning the stew into bowls were the only steps needed before dinner. Oh yes, and a little wine pouring.
