crazy stew!

the other day i went wild in the kitchen!  or at least it felt like i did at the time.  all the stews i make seem to taste the same,  so i thought i would try to mix it up.  it was good, but really didn't taste the much different from all the other stews.  here is the not so crazy, crazy stew-->
  • beef
  • sweet potato
  • parsnips
  • canned tomatoes 
  • carrots
  • worcestershire sauce
  • bragg liquid aminos
  • raspberry beer
  • red wine vinegar
  • two bay leaves
  • dill
  • salt
  • cinnamon
  • flour
  • ikea gravy mix
i ate it with my favorite fork, which i abducted from united when airplanes still used real utensils.  the pictures in the background were thrift store finds.  if you look closely, you can see that the same women is blacked out in both pictures.  nothing like good old family drama.  they were too good to pass up.  

not pictured: sweet beer bread!  (underneath the stew)

  1. wow, this crazy stew looks delicious--and I love love the photographs. Nice juxtoposition, I mean... warm, hearty stew framed by what seems to be (at first glance) warm family portrait-and then you notice the begrimed faces which makes me think of cold hard aversion... nice. i like. oh, I said that.
