As you might remember from yesterday (it was just yesterday, if you already forgot then go home) I prepared a Mexican Beef Stew. It’s actually from my Rival Crock-Pot cookbook and is really called Campbell’s Mexican Beef & Bean Stew. I Googled it, and found the recipe online so I can link to it without typing it over. Modern technology. It’s a good thing. A lot of recipe sites categorize by the course or the meat. The link I provided groups a little differently (see screen shot below). I like that I can also go to an advanced search and still look around by ingredients and such.
Of course that site is all about Campbell’s. For more generic recipes, visit recipe.com and allrecipes.com. Most recipe sites provide for printing 3X5 (and others) sized cards that you can slip into your recipe box. Who the hell knew I could go on and on about cooking. This all coming from me who owns and often uses Cooking For Dummies. It’s been a really useful book for me.

I spent what seemed like hours steam cleaning the carpets. More like fixing the damn machine I should say. We haven’t used it in well over a year. It’s been in storage while we’ve been gallivanting all over the country. I was all ready to spot clean previous pet oops-sites and discovered nothing would spray. It turned out all 3 nozzles were clogged. I had to use tools (pliers) to remove the nozzle clamp from the hose. I used a safety pin to jab at the nozzles. Maddening, I assure you.
---The outcome of the stew? A definite keeper. Delicious. Flavorful. I served it on a bed of brown rice. Yum. We also limited ourselves to 1 serving. Part of our problem is not just the type of food we eat but also the amount. Jim was disappointed when I served it and remarked “this is it”. We both wanted more but we didn’t.
