Yep, that’s a picture of my very own stew! Isn’t it lovely? And, it was so very very yummy. Now, I’m a fan of stew, because I’m pretty sure you can’t mess it up. I usually start with ground beef, add some canned tomatoes and start throwing stuff in as I find it. But today, I just really outdid myself. It must be all the good suggestions you all have been sending to me!
Here’s what I threw together:
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 white onion
4 small white potatoes, diced
2 cans diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano
raw carrots and celery, sliced
1 can ranch style beans (I think this is what gave it that extra “oomph”)
salt and pepper
I know there aren’t measurements for some of those things, but I truly did it old school and threw things together until “it looked right.” It worked out pretty well too, because the kids ate it up for lunch as they took a break between snowball fights. Good Times.
