We got a little blast of cooler air in South East Tejas today. Low 70’s but I kid y’all not a lady was walking out of the post office in FUR.
Still as crazy as that is…when the temps drop from the 90’s to the 70’s it is hard to not wanna cook some stew.
I picked up a box of lentils the other day. You can see it in the top pic. It had a packet of spices.
So last night to the crockpot I added
The box of Lentils and Seasoning
6 cups Chicken Stock
Sautéed (in butter) and pureed White Onion and Celery
1 chopped Potato
2 Ham Hocks
When it was close to done today I added
1 can of Green Beans
1 cup frozen Corn
I served it with cornbread.
It was really good. Well the cornbread wasn’t that great but the stew was. I’m still trying to perfect an acceptable gluten free cornbread. I’m super spoiled / picky when it comes to cornbread. I don’t like a straight corn base at all. I like a flour / corn base and I just haven’t gotten it ‘right’ yet.
Have you made your first pot of soup / stew of fall yet? If not what are you looking forward to making (or just eating). 🙂
