With the skies poised to dump an abominable amount of snow on us, I thought it might be wise to make a buttload of hearty beef stew to sustain us. I think it’s pretty tasty – we’ll know if it’s truly good if Niles gets home and eats the rest of it tonight. That’s how I know if I truly nailed a recipe: if there are no leftovers.

You know what I just realized? Almost everything in the pot is from a local farm! How about that. I think the onion was from a grocery store, but everything else is from a local CSA.

I’ve been peer-pressured into doing Hourly Comics tomorrow. I’ve never done this before because I usually think my days are pretty boring, but we shall see what we come up with. For all I know, there will be three solid hours of me trying to get from point A to point B, depending on when the snow starts. :)
