It is cold and grey here. We will be eating some beef vegetable soup and grilled cheese sandwiches.

What are you eating?

Not much here. I went out to lunch today and had a sub sandwich with turkey, provolone, spinach, tomatoes, red onions, avocado, and olives. I could only finish about half, so brought the rest home to nibble on later.

I made a fairly plain, improvised beef casserole but the amazing thing about it was that I got the stock/gravy for it the best ever flavour!

I sealed the lean beef cubes with a mix of oil and some duck fat I had - in about 3 lots (so as not to overcrowd the frying pan). With each batch I deglazed the frying pan with some water (keeping it for stock). I formed the stock from bayleaves, a red chilli with seeds (which gave it an added dimension), onions, garlic and a good quality beef stock concentrated gel.

I slow baked the casserole for 2 hours - with fairly large potatoes baking on the upper shelf. To thicken the stock, I added potato flour (premixed with water) - which is far more pleasant than cornflour. The heat within the casserole was sufficient to cook through this thickener, after a stir and leaving it for a few minutes. I served it with some freshly cooked kale.

We're doing big fat juicy hot dogs on the grill, with grilled peppers and onions. SC will have a grill toasted Hoagie roll for his, and lots of grated cheese for us both.

Burgers on the grill, with "oven fries". Dice some red potatoes, toss with EVOO, bake for 25 minutes, then brown them under the broiler.

Spent the afternoon after work at the doctor's with a sinus infection then at the pharmacy waiting for my drugs. Too tired to cook. Taco Bell was the concensus from the rest of the family so that's what we had. I had a taco salad and will soon be hitting the bed.

We had some more of the pasta e fagioli, plus a few biscuits I thawed from the freezer and baked briefly in the toaster oven. I don't know why I've never made this soup before, but we love it.

I've made the Olive Garden Copycat recipe, love it. And it freezes beautifully.

Jabbur, sure hope you feel better soon.
