I have been on vacation for three days!! I get to wear regular cloths and they fit!! I tried them all on, this past Monday, my first vacation day. It was actually a weird day. Usually The Man and I run errands on my days off. We didn’t. We stayed home and cleaned house, because my mom was flying out from Colorado that night. Into Oakland. At midnight. UGH! Who the hell wants to go to Oakland in the middle of the night?! Nobody!! But I digress. Anyway, we cleaned house washed clothes, folded clothes, and so forth…and so on….
I thought that house cleaning crap would take me all the way to 10pm. Not so much. By 5pm, I was done!! The house wasn’t done, but I’d had my fill of this cleaning foolishness!! Hello!! Vacation!!! I want to do stuff I want to do!! Like eat!! I like to eat!! Which means I had to cook. So much for the clean kitchen…….
Here’s what you’ll need
About a pound and a half to two pounds of stewing beef. One quart of beef broth. One cup of dry red wine. Four carrots. 3-4 stalks of celery. One onion. Four cloves of garlic. Two tablespoons of tomato paste. A few splashes of Worcestershire sauce. Sea salt. Ground pepper. Olive oil.
Cute the beef into one inch cubes.
While the beef is browning, prepare your vegetables. (Remember to use a different cutting board)
Peel and slice your carrots into coins.
Bring to simmer. Cover and simmer till beef is tender.
Remember, you can add more vegetables or add some fresh chopped herbs, like rosemary, thyme and a whole bay leaf. Make it your own.
