Slow Cooker Korean BBQ Beef

Slow Cooker Korean BBQ BeefGetting my family around the table all at the same time never gets any easier!  Let me say this, if you have little ones that are not in evening school activities and sports,  ENJOY!  Make meal time a priority.  Get those cute snot nosed faces around the table no matter how hard it may be to keep them seated for more than 10 minutes, JUST DO IT!  Believe it or not you will miss these days.  I look back at how frustrated I used to get about meal time, all the whining, wiggling, and fussing but at least we were all together around the table.  That’s what really mattered.  Not that meal time was perfect, but that we were together!

My kids tease me now, when we finally get our hineys seated around the table at the same time, inevitably someone says “hey! we’re eating 2 gather!!”.  LOL.  They’re so sassy.

Slow Cooker Korean BBQ BeefI’m missing my oldest.  He left for the U of M on September 4.  I’m still numb and my eyes are constantly on the verge of over flowing.  If I blink too hard water squirts out.  The littlest things set me off.  Like coming across a t-shirt in the laundry that didn’t make the cut for college, mail addressed to him, and making any of his favorite foods.  I always want to send him a picture of what he’s missing at the dinner table….like a “hey wish you were here” post card type thing, but maybe that’s not a good idea.  I don’t want him to be sad about what he’s missing for dinner at home, I honestly want him to enjoy every minute of college life and well get good grades!  I feel guilty sometime that I’m so sad about him going, I just miss him.  I like all my kiddos close by, but I know that’s not realistic, so I’m praying really hard about embracing this stage of life.

Slow Cooker Korean BBQ BeefSlow cooker Korean bbq beef is a favorite of Noahs!  Hey No (that’s what I call him, sometimes I call him NOwah, sometimes I call him Cuzzy, but mostly when I think about it I just call him No) this ones for you buddy!  Maybe you can pass it on to your friend Nort who’s roommate is all into crock potting.  I’m laughing out loud right now….LOLing about Matts crock potting roommate.

    Janey :

    This sounds YUMMY and I think we will add it to the camping menu. I remember clearly how I didn’t do well when my first one left for college. Thankfully, she was the one that would come home from school every day and sit at the kitchen table and tell me everything that had happened at school and who wore what and it didn’t stop when she left, so we had cookies and milk with mom at least 4/5 times a week on the phone. She’s 45 this year and we still have that same connection and I am so grateful she never has lost the desire to communicate with her mom. Hugs, Sheila. It’s ok
