The temperature here in Chicago dropped drastically over the past weeks. Snow turned into ice, while the wind continues to whistle its frigid tunes. They wouldn’t have called it the windy city for nothing.
While I’m lazily slouching at the couch watching my favorite Food Network shows (Iron Chef America good, but I find Chopped to be more entertaining), I thought of making some beef stew to make myself warm. I’m not sure if I have all the ingredients and I don’t plan to drive on ice. This is the time when online grocery shopping and delivery services such as Peapod come-in handy.
I needed some beef parts such as brisket or sirloin, some onions, tomatoes, a little dried thyme, and I also need to move my lazy bones. Good thing I still all of the needed ingredients in my inventory like a pound of beef brisket, a can of diced tomatoes, some onions, and dried thyme (except moving my lazy bones). I did not need to order groceries online at that point.
