Southern Ice

Submitted by Christi


I woke up this morning to an icy wonderland. It is eerily quite. No cars driving past, no one out walking their dogs. Every now and then I here the crash of tree branches breaking and falling to the ground. This is the first Winter storm this year but it is doing a lot of damage. I just hope we don’t lose power. I’m making beef stew today. If we lose power, I can at least heat it up on my gas stove. Hopefully it won’t come to that.

Today’s Lagniappe: Beef Stew

Lightly dredge 2 lb. of stew meat in flour. Brown the meat in a little oil in the bottom of a dutch oven. When the meat is brown, add a couple of potatoes and 3 or 4 carrots that have been cut into bite size chunks 1 can of beef broth, 1 lg. can of tomato sauce, 2 cups red wine, a few tablespoons of Worcestershire, garlic powder, salt and pepper (to taste).  Bring to a boil and then simmer for a couple of hours. Serve with cornbread.

Sorry for the vague measurements. I am trying to write fast in case we lose power.

    Wondering what part of the south you are in; I didn’t think it was supposed to get this far south and I’m in NORTH Alabama.

    Hey C.A., I am in Mountain Home, Arkansas. The farthest North I’ve ever lived and I’m ready to move farther South, especially today! We always talk about moving closer to New Orleans where my husband was born.
