Tryin' To Get the Feeling Again

I needed a food snuggie tonight. That is to say a nice warm head to toe soft but fulfilling comforting stew. Old fashioned beef stew. Big chunks of carrots, potatoes, celery, onion, and beef simmered in the bones with marrow, thickened with flour. For color and more nutrition I added frozen corn and peas as well as a 1/4 cup of barley.
This was another one of the first recipes I really embraced years ago out of my Fanny Farmer Cookbook. This simple method produced a perfect stew with that familiar reassuring delightful warm, soft delicious taste going down your throat. It's like being back in the womb.
