So as it is winter again, we are cooking winter dishes again, and this time it happens to be lamb stew. A pretty rich lamb stew, that is going to spread a really nice smell around the house and make everyone around you very hungry. By the time the stew was done, I had a starving BF around the house.
I went to Costco to buy the usual necessities. I was supposed to just buy things like boring toilet paper and flour and sugar for my cakes and cheese (I find they have a great selection of cheese) and that was about it, of course I got out with a full cart and spent much more than I anticipated. But one of the things in my cart was fresh, shelled, English peas!!
Peas are one of my favorite vegetables and they are extremely hard to find fresh over here, so I had to grab a couple of bag and use them ASAP. And that is what I did! As soon as I got home I started preparing a beef and pea stew.
Yesterday I was working from home, so I decided to do some stew. I had seen on-line these recipes for a peppered stew called “Peposo” (literary: peppery) typical from Tuscany. I had been looking for an occasion to try it for a while and yesterday seemed to be just the right occasion. It turned out to be a great spicy and aromatic stew.
I decided to share this recipe with Full Plate Thursday by Miz Helen and It’s a Keeper Thursday by Christina.
