It's been the kind of day to stay home and cook. The heavy wet snow kept us from going to town.
We decided to make Mulligan Stew. We threw everything in a big pot in anticipation of the power going out.
I had fresh carrots, so I started cooking with just enough water to cover.
We thawed and browned some beef that looked a little chewy and cut that up small. Add the beef.
We only had sweet potatoes, so we used canned white potatoes. (if that's the Canadian spelling - no comments from the peanut gallery).
We had frozen peas and frozen turnip so we added those. Then we threw in some canned stewed tomatoes, and regular tomatoes. We decided a can of mushrooms was just the ticket.
For spicies, Bobby threw in Knorr vegetable bouillon, Worcestshire sauce, salt and pepper, Kikokthman sauce and the last of some ginger salad dressing from the frig.
I threw in the leftover bacon from breakfast for good measure.
It was really good with some rolls we found in the freezer and baked in the oven.
We sent brother-in-law Bill home with some kick-ass Mulligan Stew for he and Tracy.
It's 6:00 PM and we haven't lost power yet.
However, the wind is blowing like crazy, so anything can happen.
