Are ‘Stew’ Ready for Some Football!?!

Can you guess who came up with the title for this evening’s blog post?! My husband is so clever, isn’t he? ๐Ÿ˜‰

In the late afternoon, Mal and I headed over to Dave and Marie’s house to watch football and enjoy dinner with them. When we arrived, Marie had just finished putting together a big pot of beef stew. Mmm! What a wonderful surprise! ๐Ÿ˜€

While the stew simmered on the stovetop, the guys watched football and tracked their Fantasy Football teams.

The dogs napped and played.


And Marie and I went shopping! ๐Ÿ˜‰


Old Navy is having some really great sales right now (and I had a 40% off coupon), so I scored a bunch of good deals! ๐Ÿ˜€

After our trip to Old Navy, Marie and I returned home to the delicious smell of beef stew.ย While we were out shopping, the guys were on top of things. They watched the stew, baked some corn bread, and set the table for dinner.



Beef stew + beer = best autumn meal ever! :mrgreen:


Marie totally nailed the beef stew. It was perfect– thick, hearty, and full of flavor. I practically licked my bowl clean.

  1. I love beef stew! Its a comfort food for me, and my Mom makes the best! I haven’t been to old navy in years, their commercials are awful, I don’t even know where there is one in Charlotte, perhaps I will have to hunt one down if theres cute stuff on sale!

  2. Yum! I love beef stew during the fall. Bonus points for what I think are little corn muffins on the side!

    I think it’s so awesome that you and Mal are both friends with Dave and Marie. My husband and I are dying to make friends with another couple!

  3. Ahhh I’m really beginning to fall in love with these fall days, especially Sundays…even if I’m not totally into the Pats, it still is fun to be a part of ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Holy moly. My grandmother used to make the most phenomenal stew. It was one of my favorite meals (along with every single other thing she cooked). Thanks for the sweet reminder of my most loved grandma!

  5. Beef stew IS an autumn meal! It’s always on the menu at the summer camp I work with, and everyone hates stew night because the kids are freaked out by it, it’s messy to clean the dishes, and it’s so not a summer dish!!

  6. The stew looks so good! Tina, if you don’t mind me asking, where did you get your 40% coupon for Old Navy? From their website?

  7. OMG I have been looking for square bowls everywhere and I can’t seem to find the perfact set. I have square dinner and salad plates. I absolutely love your set. WHERE oh where did you purchase your set????
