Wednesday May 11th - Dinner?

We're going with some string bean stew over rice for dinner tonight.

I've never heard of "String Bean Stew" before. I like things over rice though.

Actually, this started out as a side dish, Italian style string beans. I sauté an onion and some garlic, add some canned tomato, oregano and basil. Simmer then add string beans and cook 'til done.

When I saw some stew meat in the freezer I browned that first, then simmered it with the tomato and seasonings until tender and added the string beans. Viola! String Bean Stew.

I hope you like it.

I also add white wine and a splash of broth to manage the thickness of the sauce.

Here's the whole thing so I don't miss anything:

Andy this sounds great. I am sitting here cleaning green beans. Hubby picked the last ones in the garden. Looks like there is going to be over a gallon. No potatoes in the stew? Sounds like a good diabetic recipe.

Thanks
Josie

I'm going to make a cheesy goulash out of the leftover elbow macaroni and turkey burgers from the other day. I'm sure I'll find some other stuff to add, too.

Josie, I don't like stewed potatoes so I usually make mashed. I also use noodles or rice to go with stews and braises.

Mmmmm, that sounds tasty Andy. Leftovers here for my family and I'll be eating at work. The leftovers consist of:

Last bits of chinese food
Chicken cacciatore
Pizza.

That should feed the scavenging hoards!

Leftovers here, too. I made way too much Chicken tetrazzini (or my approximation of it) last night & my husband took cereal for lunch today instead of some of the leftovers, so it looks like we need to eat some for dinner.
