Crock-Pot Recipe Challenge Day 26 & 27- Beef Stew & Rice

Confession. I do not like making rice. Don’t even know why either, love to eat rice, not so much making it. I’m funny that way . On to the recipes-

Beef Stew is always a must on cold winter days, so get out the crock pot and get making some hearty stew.

1/4 cup flour

1 1/4 cups cut-up fresh carrots
1 1/4 cups cut-up fresh celery
1 1/4 cups sliced onions
