Obviously February is not my month for kitchen inspiration. Throw in this lingering cold and before you know it my poor kitchen is languishing away. Luckily for me a very cute lawyer has stepped up to the plate the past few days to make me homemade cookies, order me dumplings from downstairs, make waffles and turkey bacon, and make a whole crock pot of beef stew which has sustained us for three days. Oh yeah, and get me pretty orange flowers (and not for Valentines!).
Simple set up: beef, potatoes, green pepper, onion, and a beef stew spice packet. The crock pot is essential because the beef was all nice and fall apart tender which doesn't always happen if you make it quickly in a pot.
