As with most new years, there are resolutions to get thin. On this cold, wet, and foggy morning, I thinned the beets and carrots. I didn’t need to pitch most of them. The baby beets were cooked and pickled to use on the salad for dinner that was picked fresh (romaine, spinach, and bibb). The carrots were used for the chicken stew. Since there weren’t enough, my friends for the local carrot giant, Bolthouse Farms supplemented the balance. Thanks guys.The stew is a concoction of chicken, bacon, onions, garlic, beer, and broth. How can you go wrong? Peas will be added a bit closer to the end of cooking time. Now I can go watch thee football playoffs while the stew simmers and the fireplace crackles as I drift off into a deep nap.
I’m a regular modern day Elizabeth Lane! Everything is hunky dunky.
