Trimmed and halved Brussels Sprouts, Canola Oil, Salt/Pepper - Roasted in Oven
Finished off with lots of Lemon Zest and served.
The roasting of these suckers is what converted Hubs...no bitter flavor here!
Go on, give this a try...the kids might even like it if you call it something else :)

I found a good looking hunk of bottom round on sale this particular weekend, which led to this awesome creation!
Tried something new...coating with flour before the browning.
In my Ode to Julia/Christening of Le Creuset, she instructed to sprinkle flour after the brown...
...but I think this worked better.
Would you look at that, it's perfect!
Time to get the cauldron going.
Olive Oil, Garlic, Onion go into the pan used to brown the meat.
In goes a bottle of Bordeaux (I think this really helped to kick things up a notch on the deliciousness scale), then some beef stock and we simmer until thick.
FT4Me's Best Stew Ever!

Over-worked and over extended...but we're not starving!
I have many, many pics stored up with every intention of getting back into this blogging thing...however as I've said before life happens and unfortunately this time around the blog did not make the cut.
Filled with guilt and motivation not to let this thing die, I've decided that yes, I will continue to post the food...so with or without narrative there WILL BE FOOD!
For those days I have something to write, I will...and for those times I just can't find the time, I won't. Maybe this is a half-ass attempt at blogging, but at least it's not fallen into the category of 'started and never finished'...well at least not yet haha!
In the end you'll have some delicious pics to scroll through and maybe even some ideas to gain to bring into your own households :)
Food Scroll #1 : First Time Since...BBQ Chicken & Double Side of Veg
Hubs second 'first time since' dinner I prepared (of course at his request) was BBQ Chicken.
