I think it’s going to be a shortish blog tonight as I am feeling rather tired.
The house smells gorgeous from this slow cooked beef that’s been in the slow cooker all day. I think I’m going to serve it with boiled potatoes.
As usual I got all the ingredients out ready to start.
After browning the beef and setting it aside, the first stage looked like this. Onions, celery and garlic.
Next went in the carrots.
The red peppers.
Now it looks like this. Yum yum.
David’s chocolate advent calendar arrived today…2 days late. He’s just eaten 2 windows’ worth and I’ve had one. I’m really enjoying my Bare Minerals one. So far I’ve had a clay cleanser, a mini lipstick called “Courage” and a little blusher. I’m managing to keep up with trying them out each day so far!
I’m off for a little nap before dinner now. Hope you’re all well. What a strange Christmas. This afternoon I switched on our twigs. They actually look a bit better than this picture, really cosy. Last year we forgot to switch them on all Christmas 😂. I guess we were busy!
