It has been just so cold lately around here, with snow coming in every few days to drop a few more inches. Really, this is not normal for our area of Colorado, but it is normal for the mountains.
So soups and stews really sounded good to me, beef stew in particular. I made our Slumgullion Stew a week or so ago for us and for friends and caught a picture before we ate it all up. Here is the recipe for Slumgullion Stew.
I made it up on a Saturday morning in my cast iron pan. Let it sit all day, and reheated it for dinner. I think that sitting process allows the flavors to develop and everyone thought it was fantatic. Try it!
