|Guinness beef stew with cheddar biscuits. Mmmm|
So far, I've only made one thing, which is a Guinness beef stew. I was surprised at how easy it was to make a delicious flavorful stew! I got up early and set it up, and then in 8 hours dinner was done and amazing. I also made cheddar biscuits using an Irish cheddar I found, to keep the country of origin-theme going. All in all, it was a huge success and a hit in our household.
I'm a little leery of leaving something on all day when I work in Boston, for fear that Lewis could get into it or that it could set the house on fire. I know that everyone does this, and it's probably me just being nervous, but I feel like so I don't fret all day, this will be a weekend cooking option only.
I think I'll try making something over the long weekend, perhaps a soup or a slow cooked chicken. I've been reviewing my slow cooker cook book and all the blogs and websites online for new recipes that I never thought to make until this winter. Bean stews, pot roasts, pulled pork... you will all be made and devoured soon.
