I know half the loaf is gone
The stew; very tasty, not as much liquid as what I usually like, a little "tomatoey" being that it called for 2 TBS of tomoato paste (not something I usually do, or ever for that matter), but very good. It had a different kind of flavor and I'm sitting here still liking it. It's just not like my regular stew, but that's OK.
Here's the bread. The "orange" color from the tomato paste didn't make my stew worth snapping.
