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. 😉

If you don’t like that idea, then make some hearty beef stew!

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

Beef stew is the perfect meal for the holiday chaos. If you are looking for holiday ideas, I would say go with tri-tip or pot roast. and of course garlicy mashed potatoes!

Nothing like a hearty beef stew to get you through the winter! I can't believe how soon Christmas is. Now that we live away from family it seems like more work. My in laws get here on the 22nd - I am kind of freaking out!!

I need more time too. Either that or the days need to be longer!! This beef stew looks great! It's similar to mine, but I have never tried adding beer, I love it!
