Beef Stew

There are simply not enough days until Christmas. I am thinking of starting a petition to bump it back to the end of January. It seems as though after Halloween there is this ma dash of prepping menus, cleaning, decorating and family get togethers that can quite frankly, stress people out.

In the summer (at least my family) you see your family all the time. It seems at least every other weekend there is a barbeque, game of horseshoes or birthday party that pulls everyone together. But none of those need any thought. Grab some burgers, grill some wienies, everyone will bring a side and party’s on.

So, my suggestion is to bump the holidays back to January (don’t worry we can still throw a small New Years shin dig) or make standard Christmas fare hot dogs and pre-sliced cheese. 😉

Speaking of holiday planning, I just found out I’m hosting Christmas dinner. So, any suggestions would be welcome….

    I will be the first to sign your petition! I am scambling to get the tree up, finish my shopping, and trying to keep up with the kids! A few extra weeks would do me a world of good! The beef stew looks wonderful, one of my favorite things to make in the winter.

    That may be the absolute most awesomest picture of beef stew I’ve ever seen in my life. I’ll sign the petition, but I’d rather just sign something that gets all the parties spread throughout the the year. Why wait until now to do cookie swaps? Why not do a summer swap? I’d probably get less chocolate and more citrus flavored cookies and bars that way.

    But for now, I want stew. That stew. Wow, oh wow.

    Oh, how I LOVE Beef Stew! I always used to ask for it for my birthday and while mom complained (just a little ) she always made it for me. I’ve not been as successful as she was in making it, but this one really has all the ingredients in it that I love. I think I just may have to give it a try!
