Oops. Completely forgot I ordered Divine Misdemeanors from Amazon… - Melodramatic, corsetted mistress of the obscure

Oops. Completely forgot I ordered Divine Misdemeanors from Amazon and ordered it again (last month...) from SFBC. They are currently both on their way to me now.

*heavy sigh*


I have also put all the fixin's for beef stew in a crockpot (one that I haven't used in... um... well, maybe once in the last ten years).


I really hope this works out. That's a whole lotta beef stew going to waste if I find it inedible.

I don't cook much. :( And then there's just me. A crockpot of food is a LOT of food.

That's what freezer bags are for!

I did, and then I got a set of oven-safe calphalon with a pot about half the size of my crockpot. It currently has one recipe of beans with bacon, molasses, and mustard in it, in my oven at home. It's really nice to be able to preboil the beans, fry the bacon, and bake the whole mess all in one pot.

Love,
Rowan

This last year or so - yes. I've got two, and need both. I inadvertently trained Lawnchair into expecting that there is always a big batch of something (chili, soup or curry) in the fridge for him to take for lunch. I'm currently working on increasing the number of recipes I cycle through (currently cooking a vegetarian version of tamale pie.)

Fortunately beef stew (depending on how you define that) is pretty hard to screw up :)

Low heat, 8 hours, don't add any/too much water. (Unless you want soup.)

Also, WHITE PEPPER!

Yeah, I am thinking the water the recipe had me add was a mistake. Alas. Perhaps I will take the lid off so it can reduce a bit.


Or... isn't corn starch supposed to be a thickener? I might have to ask my mother a little closer to eatin' time.

I had the same problem once. I was told corn starch wasn't the best idea so what I did was like you said, removed the lid for about an hour still on low and it reduced to a decent thickness.

Ok, we have some odd parallels in our lives going on right now (besides us both making beef stew today) because I too have two copies of Divine Misdemeanors on the way to me right now. I have to make sure to refuse one of the packages.

Funny thing is that I cannot see any record of me ordering it twice. I do see that Amazon shipped two, in two different packages, at two different prices ($14.04 and $13.76) and charged me for both. So strange.

So, I was going to work on photo albums for my family, caulk my tub and maybe put more antique corsets on e-bay. Are you doing the same or by chance wearing a coral colored top?

LOL. Maybe we are just meant to have two?

(It might just be a glitch in Amazon's notification system, since it seems there was a price reduction.)

But, no. No antique corsets and no coral colored top. Dragon Age and a black fleece pullover (there's nasty frozen water falling outside.)
