Stopping the Chill

Today was so cold, with a brisk wind and snow flurries. The kind of weather that makes you feel chilled to the bone. After very little discussion, we decided that a nice pot of beef stew would be perfect.

Audrey was thrilled! She has been craving beef stew for awhile now. She quickly exclaimed she wanted to "help". Well help she did, actually I ended up helping her!

Other than cutting the roast into "stew sized" pieces, the stew was hers. From browning the meat, sauteing the onions, peppers & celery to making a slurry to thicken the broth. She did it all.

She was very proud of her delicious beef stew (as were we). And, we have plenty left-over for lunch tomorrow!
