I am tempted to dine on junk food but that is not what my body needs.
After a night of interrupted slumber... keeping a post-op kitty company...
energy runs low and the thought of preparing dinner flies out the window...
Enter Beef Daube Stew.
It is easy and quick to prepare...
it stews happily bubbling in the oven freeing up the cook to attend to other things.
(like a cat nap...yawn)
1/4 c. oil
3lbs. chuck roast cubed
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 c. flour
750 ml. bottle French Red wine
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. red wine vinegar
1 tbsp. Herbs de Provence
1 bay leaf
4 carrots sliced
12 ozs. package of pitted prunes
parsley as garnish
I use a Le Creuset ovenproof pot, (Humble Bungalow Hostess chartruese green)
brown beef and onion in oil,
add flour stirring for 4 minutes.
Add the remaining ingredients.
Cook in oven at 325 degrees covered for 75 minutes.
Garnish with parsley and
Serve with soft bread (for mopping up the rich gravy)
green peas and orange carrots
remind me of this...
(she says as she shakes her head)
Made in Spain
and such a great idea
save messing about with cling film
I am not usually excited about a kitchen product but these really are amazing
(or maybe it's sleep deprivation)
100% platinum silicone
she's got her appetitie back after her spaying
is wearing a Buster collar and is confined to a room that has been "cat proofed"
jumping is strongly discouraged
I am hunkered down with tea, my book, and laptop
an improvised bed of sorts on the floor...
last night I hardly slept
I cat napped
but I felt better keeping tabs on Pepper
she's doing pretty well all things considered.
I am lusting over the bedrooms and linens
I almost forgot that I had taken this picture
they look like coloured paper towels but they are much "greener"
Santa popped them in my stocking...
100% cotton cloths/napkins by the roll
you tear them off as you need them...
