Here is a Landmark I am sure you ALL would be familiar with!
This is a hill of Snow that has fallen from the heavens this past week..
I had to go into town which for us is down the escarpment…
and this was taken in a small town called Grimsby!
and here is a photo of our home….
our snow banks are about 4 feet tall and I just love it…
All of this has fallen in the past week.
Our snowblower has certainly been busy…
Sumatra does make me laugh…she cries to go out then gets down off the deck,
and sits there…the banks of snow are all around her keep her motionless….
I usually have to go out and pick
up her to come in…. We go through this countless times per day lol
I just love that our Blue Jays have such attitude…He could see me taking pics…
he gave me many profiles, but this one says it a lllllll!
Mrs Buttons… she is getting braver….again all these photos are taken from me on
the window bench inside the house….
Now alll this winter white stuff has me thinking STEW
but no ordinary stew….one that is made with
Guinness Beer….This is one of our staples during our cold spells..
Nothing warms you like a hot stew…
thought you would like the recipe….
Recipe from Mdm's Samm Kitchen
1 -3 to 4 pound bottom blade pot roast
( braise it first then cut into chunks…about 1.5 inch cubes)
3 tbs of butter
2 onions chopped fine ( I like sweet onions)
1 tb tomato paste
2 garlic cloves minced
1/4 cup of flour
2 boxes of beef broth…( or cans) approx 3 cups)
1 bottle or can of Guinness Draught beer
2 tb of brown sugar
5 large yukon gold potatoes cut into 1.5 inch cubes
8 med size carrots cut into 1 inch pieces
salt and pepper
before browning, add butter and on medium heat
Braise or brown roast on all sides then cut into cubes.
Add back to your large bottom pot...
Add onions and cook till soft, add tomato paste and simmer
till all browned…now add garlic cook for about a minute, stir in flour and then pour beef broth… beer and brown sugar…
No need to cover pot and simmer for about 2 hours on low heat…
( you can do this in a crock pot too…but braise or brown
meat in a pan first)
After 2 hours, add potatoes and carrots…cook till
tender, about 1 hour…season…
I like to add some cloves…usually 4….this just makes
it very fragrant….
Serve with hot biscuits…a perfect meal for a cold winter day..
See you soon for our KONA HOP!
I just happen to come across this
flamingo…I know it was a treasures from my world travels
from years ago…it still had a sticker on it..
goodness me she was priceless…lol
I thought of someone immediately when I found her..
she would be good for glasses or a card..
surely she will find some use for her…
So she will be packed and on its way tomorrow..
What treasure have you come across that had
SOMEONE"s name on it?
