Beef stew with added peas – 14 December 2015

main151214setting151214I texted D at about 6:30 wondering if he had ideas for dinner. He just said maybe beef stew again, so I reminded him of his idea of adding peas. He said yeah, and headed out for a new loaf of bread (Acme Italian). He cooked up what he thinks is about half the remaining wine151214stew – possibly a bit less than half – and added some frozen peas, some wine – maybe more flour to thicken? Anyway, it was yummy – better than last night. The peas gave it a brightness – both taste and appearance – and it was thicker and more stew-like.

D chose a bottle of Brutocao Zin (2008) from our multi-case Grocery Outlet purchase long ago, and it was an excellent choice. This also says Mendocino, Hopland Vineyards.
