Today was a reuniting kind of day for me. I got an email from a friend, saying she was in the area, and was I able to meet for coffee? As luck would have it, I was able to meet for coffee! But I got to the coffee shop just a couple minutes early and as I was standing there, I saw a girl I recognized from college. She was in my sorority and a year older than me. I hadn't seen her since she graduated - which was quite a while ago, but I recognized her immediately. She did not recognize me immediately.
I waved as she walked by, and she gave me one of those "hey crazy woman waving at me" waves back, and then, just as she almost passed me, I saw the recognition in her eyes. She flipped around quickly and enveloped me in a giant hug. We chatted, quickly catching up, exchanging numbers, and promising to dinner soon. I'm so glad I ran into her, she's one of the reasons we fell in love with this town.
My coffee date showed up and we caught up, for longer than I was expecting. Before I knew it, I was late for my own plans to make dinner! I had to improvise. So I tossed some meat and wine in the skillet. Letting it simmer gave us the time to head to the gym, come home and get comfy - Just in time for ANTM. I called the result, but that doesn't mean I liked it.
I also had some time to create my makeshift green bean casserole - green beans, dijon mustard, and cornflakes (super fancy), and some brown rice.
- 1 lb beef stew meat
- 2 Tbsp flour
- 2 Tbsp canola oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 5 oz tomato sauce
- 1 cup Burgundy wine
- Place beef and flour in ziplock bag and shake to coat meat.
- Heat oil in large saucepan. Add meat and onions and brown meat on all sides.
- Add tomato sauce and wine. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and cook 2 hours - stirring to prevent from sticking to bottom of pan.
