    I made a quick beef "stew' and dumplings

    The beef in the stew is just round tip steak cut into small pieces ... and some carrots.

    I do this frequently because that round steak cooks much faster and it is tender.

    I also use it with tomato sauce or stewed tomatoes and add sweet peppers and potatoes.

    Again a quick prep and cook meal.

    I love hearty soups and stews. Tonight I am going to try Curried-Squash and Red Lentil Soup. I plan to make it a lot thicker so it will be more like a stew. I am also going to jack up the spices and add some Swiss chard near the end. I have always liked the *idea* of butternut squash soups, but I really only like chunkier soups. Pureed squash soups feel like eating baby food to me; I just don't care for the texture. I'm really looking forward to trying this alternative with the fresh sweet mama squash I picked up at the local orchard over the weekend!!

    That Curried Squash and lentil soup looks awesome! I will definitely try that soon. I don't cook with Curry much though. Is this dish very hot?

    I'm ditching work early. Hubby's birthday is tomorrow. He wants to go out to dinner tonight (he's the home chef). We're heading to Legal Seafood really early because Friday evenings are always packed. He'll stuff himself with raw oysters and I'll devour a bucket or two of steamed clams while we sit at the bar watching the Red Sox decimate Tampa Bay.

    I have a big pot of chili on. It is supposed to get colder here this weekend so I am making that and chicken tortilla soup for the weekend. I tried something different with my chili this time. I added a package of beefy onion soup to it and love the taste. I also added red and green pepper with it. Normally my chili is just meat and and tomato juice and chili powder but I even added beans this time. I use ground pork, ground beef and sausage as my meats.

    Do you make your Kimchi? I was reading an article about foods that were good for your gut (that is what it said) and Kimchi was one of the foods they listed along with Kefir.

    Not yet — though I will soon, now that I have some good tips from my Korean moms (moms of my tutees).
    So far, I've either
    (1) bought kimchi from Trader Joes — good,
    (2) bought kimchi from the "Wall of Kimchi" at Zion Market (the local Korean grocery store) —better, and
    (3) had homemade kimchi that my Korean moms gave me to take home —best.

    I *do* make my own kefir: both dairy and water.
