I'm making a big pot of beef stew for dinner. I haven't made it a long time. I don't use a real recipe I just dump stuff in. I use a package of Stew Beef, dipped in flour then placed in a dutch oven that has Crisco melted in it. Then I brown the beef along with a chopped up onion. After the beef has browned somewhat I then add two beef bouillon cubes that I have dissolved in two cups boiling water. I then add chopped carrots, cubed potatoes, salt and pepper, then add some water and simmer until ready to eat. If the broth in the stew needs thickening I melt a little margarine in a pan, after the margarine is melted I add a little flour, stir until brown, then mix up one beef bouillon cube in one cup water and add to the margarine and flour mixture and stir until thick then add to the stew. Toward the end of cooking the stew I add a can of tiny early June sweet peas )I prefer LeSueur Peas ) and let then heat up.
Tonight I'll serve biscuits with the beef stew.
Tina picked up Wesley a little early today so I was able to vacuum the living room earlier then I normally do when he is here. He hates the vacuum so I try not to use it when he is here. I should dust, but I think I'll save it for tomorrow. I have clothes to fold, but I'm going to wait and fold them while watching my shows on NBC tonight.
I hope everyone is having a good Thursday!
