It's A Tough Life

My wife and daughter are out of town visiting friends this weekend, leaving my son and I to fend for ourselves.

Since I'm a big fan of the United Nations (*snort*), I decided to make this a day of international food and drink.

The day began with coffee from Ireland, Kahlua from Mexico, and cream from Texas, served in a mug from Wyoming.

Breakfast was Pigs in the Blanket, using small beer sausages from Poland.

The weather outside is cold and damp, so I figured venison stew would be a good choice for dinner.

The meat has been seasoned, floured, and browned. It was placed in the crockpot, to await the veggies and broth.

The broth is composed of ingredients from France (Dijon mustard), Ireland (Guinness), and Texas (Shiner), along with a little homemade beef stock (not shown).

Later on tonight the stew will be accompanied by a very nice Malbec from Argentina.

But right now, I'm going to take a nap in front of the fire.

Life is good...
