One of the wife's favourite winter meals is beef stew and bisquits. Being the perfect husband that I am I decided today to indulge her. Here are some pics of how I preserve marital harmony at my house.

That looks great! Gotta keep Mama happy, if Mama ain't happy ain't nobody happy! I like to cook too, and let her have a break sometimes....but like a trooper she always insists on doing the cleanup... She's a keeper!

Congrats on a well done meal. Any chance you or your wife is a birder? Those binoculars sure look to me like their owner is serious about birding. My son is a SERIOUS birder. My mouth is watering just looking at the ingredients and the finished product.  :thumbs:

Looks great ! My wife works at Caseys 3am-11am makes donuts .

I'm not allowed to touch stove so I can't cook. I do all dishes and house cleaning.

Beef stew over rice is great also. Your drop biscuts look great also.

I do the best thing for everybody and stay out of the kitchen. The Wife on the otherhand is an outstanding cook.

She say's there is a distinct difference between a cook and a baker. She says a good cook goes by taste and rarely measures or follows recipe's.

A Baker on the otherhand has to measure very carefully and folow the recipe.

Dave that all looks really yummy!  We tend to share the cooking and cleanup duties.  However we do each have our specialties, mine being omelets and steaks, hers being her world famous chocolate oatmeal no bake cookies and fudge.  The rest of the stuff gets cooked up by either of us as we both work a full time job.  Weekends tend to be pretty well fed, weekdays we get a little lax, sometimes a bowl of cereal for supper, other times a full fledged meal.

 

Dave are your veggies store bought or did you grow them?  We just got a half of a beef into our freezer last night, beef purchased from a person Kathy works with, Black Angus, grain fed, no chemical crap!!   This is the third time we have gotten meat from them and the last two times it was just awesome.  The butcher included several packets of stew meat with this batch, you have inspired me to get a pack out of the freezer.  Stew sounds good for a cold weekend.

I still want to know about the biscuits! I'm thinking some cheese, maybe a bit of onion. What else is in them?
