A Little Irish Stew among Friends

Today, a few of the Geniuses got together for food and fun. We had delicious (if I do say so myself) Irish Stew from this month's Cooking Light magazine.

The stew was very easy to make. I used all two tablespoons of raisins from the little single serve box. Peony is here with me and reminds me that we just couldn't wait that extra hour for the simmer, so we shortened the cook time. But other than that, we were by the book. Oh, and there was the matter of the beer. I bought Guinness Stout instead of Draught.

OK, so there were a few modifications. But it still hit the spot. And we didn't even drink the rest of the beer!

  2. I have to attest as one of those "Geniuses" that got to partake of this stew -- IT WAS DELICIOUS!!! I can't wait to make this recipe myself.

  3. Why do I always miss the good stuff?? I am so glad you guys had a great time, even if I wasn't there to join in the laughter.

  4. You will be there next time, Mary! And I should have thanked Kathy for the crusty rolls which accompanied the stew -- a delightful addition. When are we getting together again?

  5. Tomorrow? What's for lunch?!

    Actually, I thought I would host the next after the backsplash is tiled! Perhaps it will make me want to spruce up the rest of the house!

  6. Your stew sounds really wonderful. To enjoy good food in the company of good friends is one of life's small pleasures. Have a wonderful day...Mary
