Snowstorm 2010

I thought I would share some pictures from last weeks snow storm. My husband made good use of the snowblower on the driveway, which we are very glad we had bought!

This is a picture of our road at the bottom of our driveway. Snow drifts were up to 5 ft tall! We were prepared to be snowed in, and I didn't worry about it until my youngest was up all night with 103 temperature and throwing up! Luckily, the virus only lastest 24 hours. We were dug out Friday evening. Today was my first day back to work.
With all of this snow it brought back memories, so I just had to dig a little tunnel for the kids!

Stew Beef Recipe

I thought I would share this recipe that my mom passed on to me. I have actually made it for guests and they loved it. I am also submitting this to Shannon at For The Mommas for her 365 Recipes in 365 Days Challenge.

1 lb stew beef
1/2 stick of butter
1/2 small onion
1/2 cup ketchup
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1 t vinegar
1/2 T dry mustard
1 t garlic
1 T brown sugar
dash of chili powder

Saute butter and onion in pan until lightly brown. Add rest of ingredients. Simmer 45 minutes. May add a little ketchup and water if too thick while cooking. Serve over mashed potatoes or rice.

*I actually recommend simmering in crockpot for several hours to make the meat more tender!
