**This is another one from www.e-mealz.com.  The kids ATE THIS UP, and thought I was one of the best cooks EVER.  I’m telling you, this website not only fulfilled one of my new year’s resolutions, but it is changing my life.**

Snow Day Stew

snow day stewYep, 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”)

green beans

cilantro

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.
