The beetroots will go in a pan of water and boil away on top of the range when its lit later today. The vegetables will be made into a beef stew. Organic beef mince is on offer at the German garden centre and supermarket (Lidl) this week. So it's our second stew of the week. We always say to each other:
"It's not what you want. It's what you need."
It's just the right food when you have been outside and its wet and cold. Yes it may be boring but it's full of vitamins and it's not been sprayed with weedkillers or grown with chemical granulated fertilizer.
I remember when me and my old friend went in a pub in Doolin last year and we both ordered the Irish stew. It was excellent and went up to the bar and said to the barman that I would like to pay for two Irish stews. He replied:
"Were you hungry?"
We both laughed.
What do the Police have for their dinner?
" I arrest you."
Do you know any stew jokes? Do you know any jokes? Could do with a laugh.
