Even though it's sunny, we're having a cold spell again. I pulled a chuck roast from the freezer early and transformed it to a nice beef stew.

I don't know if you or anyone else has any tips for making them more firm? Maybe a whole new recipe and not using the potato?

Anyway, here was the end result, looks ok, tastes ok but just not sure about the consistency.
These look really good. When I cook them I like them a bit soft inside. Mine are mostly crab here is what I put in them. Crab meat, Bread crumbs about half as much by volume as crab, A bit of stone ground mustard, A bit of mayonnaise, Egg, seasoning, softened bell pepper and green onion.

Neither of us is feeling up for cooking (I'm still ill; DH is still recuperating), so it's pizza from Gigi's again.

Dam straight it is, I can attest! Seems like there is a lot of italian tonight, and I am right there with everyone else. Lasagna is cooling as we speak, serving with a green salad and garlic bread. House smells fantastic!
