That Smells Good

Today is a much cooler day here in our area. Actually its cold. It got me into the mood for something to warm us up for supper. I thawed the last package of stewing beef from the current quarter that we are almost finished from the deep freezer. I like to finish all of the packages before picking up a new order, and we have an order done and are awaiting a call for when its ready. It has to hang for quite a while so we should be alright for a bit. There is a beef stew in the oven. I thawed it this morning, browned up the beef on my lunch and put everything together into the roasting pan and into the oven on my afternoon break. Did I mention that I do love working from home for these benefits? It smells so good in here right now as the stew will be ready in an hour or so.

It’s still hot here but cold can’t be far behind. It must be so much better working from home.

The next couple of weeks our weather will be up to 30C and tonight down to 3C, so lots of changes.

I love the texture of the beef when it is done in the instant pot, and of course once you turn it on you can go about your business doing other things, or possibly resting.

It was nice. My hubby is off from work today for bereavement leave for his brother, he needs it, he looks exhausted as he is still grieving so hard. I finish work at noon as I have a half day off with pay from the award that I was given. We will each have a dish of beef stew leftovers for our lunch today. Then we will go out and get him some new pants for tomorrow and of course our groceries.

@LadyDuck Yes, he looks a little better now that I am finished working. He had a very quiet morning, which he needed. We will go out, but not for a bit, he is not ready and I do not want to rush him.

@Juliaacv - Your poor husband needs to relax and to rest for at least one full day. Enjoy this afternoon with your husband, going out with you will distract him for a while.

It was a cool yet sunny day here. Last night it went quite low and got cold, this morning is very cool but so refreshing. It looks like it will be a beautiful day.

Beef stew sounds really tasty.Beef is so outrageously expensive here now, that I am foregoing it for the most part. I did have some frozen hamburger patties though, so I enjoyed one last night.

Beef is expensive here also. I just ordered a hind quarter as they haven't raised the prices when you buy it that way. It is alot of meat, but it lasts us a long time.

As I age I am slower getting some things done, so being able to do little things here and there during the workday is a big help for me.

It certainly is a good day for beef stew. I'm going to make one over the weekend. Got chilly here overnight but it's a beautiful Fall day today

Today is a beautiful autumn day here also, tomorrow will be a few degrees warmer again, which will be nice as we are gathering with my hubby's family, and we will be outside as there are so many of us.

The next 2 weeks they have forecasted that our weather will be up and down. We will still have some 30 degree days and yet some very cool ones as well.

Roasted carrots are tasty after they've baked with the beef.
