I'm eating home-made beef stew. Definitely worth the effort.

Two lbs stew meat, 1 head of celery topped and sliced, 5 carrots sliced, 5 good-sized potatoes cubed to 1 inch, 1/2 a yellow onion diced, 1 tbsp parsley, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp black pepper, 7 bay leaves, 1/4 tsp sage, a dash of garlic powder;
In a 5qt pot, put in a small amount of vegetable oil; Brown the beef, toss in the onions, throw in all the spices except the bay leaves, and stir until carmelized; put in 3 cups of water, stir, toss in all the rest of the veggies, add water until it just barely covers the mixture, put in the bay leaves...simmer for 4 hours or so, stirring occasionally...take out the bay leaves before serving.

If you want to thicken it up at the end, stir in a tablespoon or so of flour after you remove the bay leaves, and simmer for another 10 minutes, stirring continuously.

Voila! Delicious. Feeds a family of 4. For several days. :)

This morning (it's 8am here and I've been up working for 2 hours) I am mostly drinking freshly made espresso coffee using the love of my life, my Nespresso espresso maker. I'm in a Lungo mood this morning, and have had three cups so far.

As for food, what's that again?

Guinness Export (made in Nigeria) and a nice spag bol.
Will have some fried chorizo, over-ripe tomatoes and stilton later once kids have gone to bed. Can't wait...

A nice big bacon hamburger with a nice green salad and a big pint of banana/strawberry/milk smoothie! Not a bad way to go on a nice sunny day ! ;)
