day 276 and day 6 with steve. before i get started i have a challenge for kirstys readers and followers out there. hundreds of people visit kirstys blog each day. a small group of you regularly leave comments and i thought this would be a great time for some of the shyer people out there to come out and tell kirsty what you think of her blog in general, or perhaps what your favourite blog entry was......better yet if this has inspired you in any way to try one of kirstys blog entries.
to be honest, part of me is wondering if my efforts (complete with kiwi blokey humour) might have turned some people off the blog......so this is also about my piece of mind.
anyhow the weather here today is cold and wintery. we also had more doctor appointments throughout the day so i thought a crock-pot meal would be perfect. my taste is pretty old-school and nothing is more old-school than great grandmas stew beef which i found in kirstys recipe must do board on pinterest. its easy and chances are you have all the ingredients in the pantry so no excuses not to give it a try right?
|no eggs required so they are happy.....|
|throw in cubed beef, pepper, onions, sage, onion soup mix and water......easy|
|time to thicken, and lastly add the parsley|
|served with brown rice and silverbeet........grandma says "you got to have your greens sonny"|
initially i was a bit sceptical when i saw onion soup mix in the ingredients. was this really around when great-grandma was cooking for the family? read the original posting on kitchenscoop.com where it explains how this recipe evolved over time to what it is now (click 'backstory' link next to 'recipe' tab). im sure great-grandma would be amazed at the global efforts taken to recreate this meal.
