Autumn Stew

"This is an excellent tried-and-true soup recipe that I've used repeatedly through the years. It is one of my favorites from "Betty Crocker's Recipe Card Library", which I've had since I began cooking in 1973. This one works equally as well in the crock pot (cook on low till vegetables are tender)."

  1. I'm not sure to what extent I can actually claim to have made this recipe, since I changed so many things. Let's just say I used this recipe for inspiration! I decreased the beef and increased the potatoes and carrots. Instead of using tomatoes and water, I just used tomato juice. I had no idea what on earth "brown boquet sauce" was, but I did add some beef bouillon granules to increase the flavour. I left out the celery too. So the resulting stew did not bear much resemblance to the original recipe, but it was good and we did enjoy eating it for lunch on a cold snowy day!


<p>September 15, 2007: Here's a photo of me and my two girls before leaving our hotel room to go to an Avett Brothers concert. We're all huge fans of the group. We're also huge fans of each other. It's fun to have adult children. <br /> <br /> <br />--- About me: I'm an artist, and art teacher to kids kindergarten age through 8th grade. My life whirls at a breakneck pace. I teach approximately 800 students, and have 30 different classes each week. It's crazy!!! The rewards, however, are the numerous hugs and good vibes I get from my students. If I didn't have my good-looking husband to stabilize me, I'd surely be sporting a straight-jacket. Oh, and did I mention my yarn obsession? I've made hundreds of crochet items in the past few months, and have a little shop on etsy. Check out my website when you have the time:</p> 8754768"
