wallow in it


Why mull over things so much that you can no longer tolerate it when you can easily stew, thats right stew in it instead. My favorite stew is is a Dogg Broth when I get to sit in a hot tub sipping wine or champagne and then getting out in the snow again to cool off only to go back and stew some more. Since I dont have this luxury in my life and all I have is snow I decided to make a stew.



Beef stew is a nice comforting dish that doesnt get much play in my kitchen; for one its just stew and what is stew besides boiled meat and vegetables. If you have noticed I like to cook and for some reason I cant get over thinking how simple beef stew is and its this simplicity that keeps me away from it. Arguably you can say that there are nuances and undertones in a good beef stew that are incomparable - heck just ask Julia Child but this isnt like that - this is simple and tasty beef stew. If you want the recipe just ask - thats how I roll. (in case you are wondering the answer is - yes- I put chile in a heck of a lot of things)

With more of that white crap coming down we need to take comfort in food. I have a foot and counting out here in cow country.

You're a New Mexico native. Of course you put chilis in everything. You roll with your stew the way you want to; that's the beauty of stew! As long as it has beef, it's all good.

I have no hot tub, but plenty of snow, and I'm NOT hopping in it!

snowelf said...

Yea, yea, stew... ;) I am so excited about your store! It rocks! I can't wait to move so I can start ordering stuff I need for my kitchen.
