Slow cooked beef

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!

I love food and cooking (and eating). I live in Windsor, Berkshire with my husband David.

  1. Hope you got a good nap, you sound sad (she who doesn’t know you at all…) I’m so grateful foe this Christmas with no expectations but I can’t imagine how it feels when this came in the middle of a normal working life. I think I might blog about that today. Sending hugs xx

    1. Thanks Jules, I was sad.. I wasn’t feeling very well when I wrote the blog, I had inflamed ears and suddenly felt very tired. The nap helped a lot! My mood can change quite rapidly at the moment. Up and down. I think this is not unusual living, and working through a pandemic. I found it hard to write “Merry Christmas” cards when it’s not that merry at all this year. I abandoned the task half way through…thanks for the hugs my blog friend! Xx

      1. Sorry to hear that. The nap is a great idea, just look after yourself through all of this. I found it hard to write cards too. Except it was lovely just to send a token from our house to someone else’s. Keep on cooking and showing me how it’s done! Xx
