    I made a big pot of Chili Saturday. Froze about half of it in meal sized containers.

    the stew sounds horrible to me...

    Just take the Brisket, cut it in to the 1 inch cubes, coat them with flour and then brown them in the pot and take them out, then take a fresh onion or two and cut them in to 8ths, cut several carrots in to big bite size portions and also celery and brown them slightly also in the pot with a little bit extra olive oil...add a couple of tablespoons of your favorite red wine to deglaze the bottom of the pan, add back in the beef, and add water to just about covering it, a bay leaf and salt and pepper and cover and cook until the beef is tender...maybe about an hour and a half, then add in the new potatoes cut in half or any potatoes in bite size chunks and cook for about 20 minutes longer in the stew pot. Taste again for salt and pepper....

    What about it sounds so bad?

    I thought the prunes (or Apricots) and cinnamin sort of jazz it up?

    Is there something else?

    I have a housekeeper/cook. She does most of the cooking and does a darned good job of it too.

    I've never had low-cal stew that was good. The things that make a stew a stew are starches.

    But I'm not a stew person anyway, I grew up on that stuff. Stew, beans, rice.

    Oh, and salmon & crab.

    Still can't handle more than a mouthful of crab. We had it all the time.

    Like salmon though.

    Delilah stayed at home eating bon-bons, watching soap operas, bitching about me to neighbors, and trying to cut all my hair off so the philistines could capture me for 10 years. I'm much happier with her working weekdays and weekend semi-raw salmon and acorn squash.
