I like smiling. Smiling is great.
Life has been great. I’m still unsatisfied with my job and looking for something new, but there’s not much I can complain about (except for the ever-growing stack of dishes in my sink). It’s just great when you can take a look at your life and really feel like you’re on the right path. I can look at myself in the mirror and smile, and not feel like I’m forcing a smile. I certainly don’t have everything figured out yet. But dang, what I do have is pretty good.
Okay, enough of that. On to the recipe!
So, this is obviously more of a winter recipe. Not many people greet summer with a freaking awesome stew. But, in my defense, the boyfriend likes soups and stews, and I had a giant chuck roast I didn’t know what to do with, so the obvious answer is to throw it in a crockpot with a ton of veggies, bone broth, and spices.
You know how they say the quickest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach?
I haven’t got a clue if it worked on him, but I definitely love myself a lot more. And I’m not even a man. I just like good food.
So here you go. An awesome beef stew recipe. And it makes a LOT – depending on how much you eat and how many people you’re feeding, this will last you, like, a week. But trust me, you’ll still like it at the end of that week.Print
