The kitty brothers are very interested in what I’m doing. It might be kitty food in the making! Of course, when they see me notice them, they scatter to the winds.
The beef, butternut squash (which I hope will add to texture but be cooked completely down), portobello mushrooms, beef broth, and seasonings are in the crock pot now. The broccoli, green beans, carrots, and leeks will go in later so they don’t cook into mush. Onion may or may not go in, too, since I added onion powder among the seasonings.
No, kitties! This is not kitty food!
