Simple simple

Dinner last night was a basic beef stew. I browned stew meat in just the thinnest coating of light oil, then added a whole spanish onion, a package of baby carrots, a pound of mushrooms, sliced, and a pound of teeny tiny red potatoes. I also ground some pepper and tossed in a couple of bay leaves. Then I poured in about a cup or so of red wine and let it simmer on top of the stove until I thought better of it and put the pot in a 400 degree oven. We ate about 1.5 hours later.

Yeah, I know. I forgot the celery.

Be that as it may, it came out very yummy indeed. I'm guessing it was the wine. Sometimes, it pays to be simple.

Oh, that would be gorgeous.

Thing is, we *always* have wine in the house and never beer. I used up the end of the very nice Merlot we've been using for kiddush.
