I've got a chicken stew in the crock pot with rainbow carrots, red & Yukon gold potatoes, celery, fresh green beans, and some pearl barley.
Seasoned with Penzey's Forward! (my current fave seasoning from Penzey's), coarse kosher salt & freshly cracked pepper.
Not fair that I have to smell it all day long.
Love cooking stews. This will make it easier for us to prepare for my brother Joe's arrival on Friday evening. If we play it right, there will be enough left for the 3 of us to eat a bit when he gets to the house. Joe has always loved my cooking, and I plan to get him involved with food prep during this visit so that he can start cooking for himself and (fingers crossed) a girl he currently likes.
