Now that we are settled into winter. ( Yes we even had a coldspell here in Florida), hearty meals are often craved. I love to make stews, chili's and casseroles this time of year. Especially when I lived up north. I made this beef stew with a cheap cut of beef, cut and cubed. I cooked the meat first and subsequently adding the veggies in order of the time it takes to cook. Potatoes and carrots take about the same time to cook. Add the veggies when the meat starts to become tender. After you add the veggies, make the gravy by dissolving a little flour in water and add to your stew. If more veggies is what you like then go for it. Be sure and season it to your liking, serve with a green salad and dinner rolls and you've got dinner and leftovers. Enjoy!

I PURCHASED THESE WOOD NEEDLES FROM KNIT PICKS AND JUST NOW GETTING A CHANCE TO USE THEM. THESE NEEDLES ARE WONDERFUL. THE SURFACE IS SMOOTH AND COMFORTABLE AND MAKES KNITTING FLOW COMFORTABLY. I CERTAINLY INTEND TO BUY MORE.

With the holidays behind us all and a new year here full of resolutions. I resolve to enjoy my kitchen more. I have the greatest gadgets and dont use them as often as I'd like to. I have seen a multitude of wonderful recipes on a number of wonderful cooking/food blogs. I plan to try more of them. I found these latest gadgets on the clearance rack. Nothing costed more that 4 bucks. I found a meat mallet, pastry cutter, potato ricer (which I can wait to use) and a collapsable strainer. Lets see what I can cook up with these!
