In honor of the first snow of the season, and in memory of its short life, today there will be beef stew.
Although, it turned out not to be quite beef stew, because I thought the recipe didn't have enough water in it, and compensated by adding all the cans of tomato sauce in my cabinet. Sometimes I over-do it.
But everything turned out ok, and rather better than beef stew, I think.
I put the recipe up on Allrecipes. Here. It's pretty basic.
