I made beef stew yesterday. I even wrote out the recipe, and then realized that I already posted the same recipe. It wasn’t exactly the same, but it was close enough. On the plus side, I decided to check to see what, if any, beef stew recipes I previously posted.
Here’s the thing with beef stew: I love making it because every time I do, it’s slightly different. Oh, I have some peas I need to use? Great, I’ll toss some in. Not in the mood for some herbs? I’ll just use salt and pepper instead.
Random thought: I need to make more things that use up stuff sitting in my kitchen. I don’t do it enough.
I’ve been thinking, lately, about being vegetarian. I like it and all, but I while I’ve mentioned it, I don’t think I’ve dedicated an entire post to it. I think I’ll have to work on that, because it is something that’s a part of my life.
So, I was at Target earlier this week, and while I was waiting in line, I spied a baking magazine. I, of course, have to look at it. Because it’s a baking magazine, and I love baking. And after flipping through it, I made a decision. I needed to buy it, because there are delightful things contained in the pages of this magazine. Alm0nd-Mocha Muffins? They look good and you can’t go wrong with coffee. Chocolate-Cherry Bread? Yummy! Chocolate and cherry go so well together. Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake? I think I may need to make this over the weekend, or even for my birthday next week. Chocolate and peanut is the best food combination ever.
That is all for today, and I NEED to have a baking-filled weekend, because it’s been a while.
