one bottle of beer = dinner for four
Some of my readers are going to think I've gone mad, but last night I sacrificed a perfectly good bottle of beer to make stew. Guinness stew to be exact. I had clipped a recipe from a magazine some time ago and it kept ghosting around in my head so I finally decided to go for it.
Lamb, onions, leeks, garlic, celery root, carrots, green beans, potatoes, parsley, bay leaf, thyme, beef broth and...a bottle of Original Guinness/Extra Stout.
Mr. M plowed his way through two platefuls.
Boy12 said, "This tastes a lot better than it looks. Can I have more please?"
Boy9 said, "I'm not eating that!"
And me? I'm not really a stew person, but I quite enjoyed it and I'm having leftovers for lunch today.
Status quo has been maintained.
