Wow, what a week it has been! Definitely one that we will remember.
The kids have snow day # 6 tomorrow. We are all getting restless and I think that the kids are even ready to go back to school.
We have been enjoying warm comfort food the last few days. I wanted to share one of our favorites:
- 1/3 c. flour
- 1 ½ tsp. salt
- 1/8 tsp. pepper
- 1 ½ lb boneless stew beef, cut in 1 inch cubes
- 2 T. oil
- 3 cup water
- 5 medium carrots, peeled and quartered
- 4 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 2 onions, sliced
- 1/2 celery root
- ¼ c. water
Combine flour, salt and pepper, coat meat with seasoned flour. Save remaining flour. Brown meat in oil in a large kettle. Add water and cover. Simmer for 1 hour until meat is tender. Add carrots, potatoes, onions and celery. Return to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 25 minutes. Blend ¼ c. water wth remaining flour. Add to stew, stirring gently; cook until thickened.
This soup is sure to warm up the whole family!
Ready to get out of the house? Plan a trip to the farmers markets on Saturday. We will have everything you need to make this soup along with fresh greens and cherry tomatoes if you are craving a spring salad. Ground beef will be on sale this Saturday, 8lbs for $38.00.
Have a great weekend, stay warm!
