Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you are all having a lovely holiday weekend and spending plenty of time with family. Draz is with his family right now and our Christmas with my family is next weekend 🙂
Due to the holidays along with having some extra food on hand, I have a super small meal prep today…possibly one of my smallest ever! But with it being Christmas and all, I think that works out just fine 🙂 You can do this prep in under 2 hours and get back to spending time with your family. If you are doing just the ONE main dish, it will probably take you less than 30 minutes!!
This week I made our salads, my grapes with cheese snack, some protein balls for Draz and this new Beef Stew recipe. This one had a mixed reaction with us. Draz wasn’t too fond of it. I thought it was okay taste-wise, but a lot thinner than I would have preferred. It was much more a soup than a stew. Maybe if I had mashed up some of the potatoes after cooking or added some cornstarch?
But honestly, I don’t think it would have thickened up as much as I wanted either way. I did eat it this week and did enjoy it, but I think we will be sticking with a couple other of our go-to beef stew recipes in the future. If you end up trying this one and find it to your liking I would love to hear about it! Especially if you manage to get it to thicken up to more of a stew-like consistency!
That’s it for me this week! I hope you continue to have a lovely holiday weekend and I will be back on Thursday with a new post!
