tonight i made an extra large pot of beef stew for mike in the hopes that there would be leftovers to freeze. there are now at least two heaping helpings safely put away in the freezer for another day. i'm hoping the potatoes will thaw alright, but might try defrosting one portion later this week to see how it works out.
also, this serves as proof that even though i don't eat it, i actually do cook meat. :)
