My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, www.rosemary-ridge.blogspot.com ... thank you!

Recipe: Norwegian Beef Stew

I found this recipe in one of my husband's family's cookbooks, and wow, is it easy! Not the most flavorful meal, but nice and filling.

Ingredients:
1 pound fresh beef
1 pound fresh pork (or 1/2 pound salt pork)
1 medium onion
4 raw potatoes
salt/pepper

Directions:
Dice beef and pork. Place in medium to large pot, cover with water, and simmer for 1 hour. When tender, add onion and potato. Season as preferred. Cook until onion and potatoes are tender and broth is thickened (from the potato). Carrots or parsnips may be added.
