We are enjoying the pure joys of Autumn around here and we made an amazing stew to suit the season for dinner tonight. It isn't great in photos though so I added this adorable photo of our hay rides instead.

While we were getting seeds and seedlings at Common Grounds, Gracie spotted the hay and wanted a bale "so we will be prepared when we have a farm someday!"

Autumn Stew:
you can put all ingredients in the crockpot in this order and cook on low all day, add kale last 20 min
or brown meat in large pot then add other ingredients, bring to boil, stir then cook on low +/-2 hours adding kale at the end as well

all cut into big chunks:
2 large sweet potatoes
8 carrots
2 sweet onions
red bell pepper
fennel bulb

top with:
2 lbs(?) stew meat (I get natural beef, grass fed, no antibiotics, etc. etc.) tossed in flour

28 oz diced tom
1 cup red wine
1 Tsp whole grain dijon mustard
1 tsp thyme
and pour over meat and veggies

6-8 hours later...
top with
4 cups chopped kale

You will be glad for the cool weather and the rain in the forecast.
