*Snow! Snow! and more Snow! It has been snowing on and off for the past few days. I am not tired of it yet. I think it is beautiful. Give me softly falling white, beautiful snow over gray, drizzly, rainy weather any day!!
*I came home at lunch and put some ingredients into the crock pot to make Beef Stew. I use the same recipe for stew that I started using after we were first married. It is in the little book that came with our first crock pot that we received as a wedding gift. It is easy, flavorful and delicious. Sometimes I buy the frozen bags of Stew Vegetables in the store, but today, I had carrots, potatoes, celery and onions on hand, so I cut them up and put them in the pot. Here is a copy of the well-worn recipe I have been using to make stew since 1986.
*With the snow falling, it was nice to have a nice, cozy fire to warm up with when we got home from having dinner with Mom. Our fireplace has had a good workout this winter!! I am so grateful to Mr. Bisaro who built the fireplace, and did such a good job, not only making it beautiful to look at, but functional as well.
