LOL I do like my butter! When we have chili I like to have cheapy white bread with a nice thick coating of butter (real butter of course). I have "caught" some of my dad's sayings, so sometimes I tell James I am having a little bread with my butter!

We had a late lunch, so supper will be late as well. It is cooking now. Wow, does the meat look good! I rarely buy stew beef because it is so expensive. They had a boneless roast on sale for at least a dollar a pound less, so I bought that and cut it up when I got ready to make the stew. One of the nicest roasts I have seen (especially for a cheaper cut).

That chicken looks GREAT!

We had a mega salad with green leaf lettuce, grape tomatoes, sweet onion, black olives, cauliflower florets, celery, and chickpeas, with a Dijon/red wine vinegar/balsamic vinaigrette.

When we have ground beef in the house, there's no doubt about what we'd be cooking. I do not like to keep uncooked ground beef for more than 2 days and the way we freeze raw ground beef does not lend itself to spur of the moment cooking.

Do you think beef stew is a better budget stretcher than potroast?

I don't know--possibly. I was wondering if anyone was going to ask why I made stew and didn't just do it as a pot roast. I love both, but they each have their own unique flavor (I'm assuming this is largely due to a different amount of surface area being browned), and this time I opted for stew.
