my first go...

So lets try this posting thing out and see how it goes. You are witnessing history here ladies! Annalisa, you make me feel like my cooking skills are easy-bake oven style but I know you still love me right? So here was the menu for sunday dinner. An easy stand-by

Beef Stew
2-3 lbs stew meat
7 large potatoes, peeled, cut
7 carrots, peeled cut
3 cans golden mushroom soup
2 packets onion soup mix (did about 1 1/2 and it was fine)
1/2 cup water

Mix all together cover and cook at 275 for 5 hours. I put mine in a glass 9x13 pan with a cookie sheet underneath to catch a few drippings. Should feed 6-8 depending on appetite size!

Bread bowls (now all you bread experts should really be embarrassed for me!)
Thaw a frozen loaf of dough (do you have rhodes all over the country?) just enough to cut. Cut into thirds and round out a bit with your hands. Let them rise and cook as directions indicate. To serve, slice off very top and scoop out bread in the middle.

(Annalisa this is not the stew meat one you requested - that will come soon!)


  1. um, sorry no picture. Use your imagination on this one!

  2. Sounds delicious!! Perfect for a chilly fall night! Yum...

    Can't wait to try it!!

  3. Andrea this sounds spectacular!! I am sooo going to make this ASAP!! I have been looking for a stew recipe for a long time. You made a fabulous choice for your first steps into blog-land! :)

  4. Yum! I can attest this was VERY delicious...and the bread tasted very yummy as well.

    *I just had a thought: you could also use bread dough from a bakery if you don't have rhodes or something similar, or as an alternative. My mom does that occasionally for quick rolls.
