What's For Dinner: Homemade Beef Stew

My daughter-in-law requested my homemade beef stew. Which I was happy to oblige.

After decades of making beef stew with a recipe, this is one is "make up as I go". I have no written recipe, portions or ingredients. I use what is available in the house.

My family tells me they love it. I'm glad that they do.

Loving these Wilma Schumann Skincare Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads sample from my Birchbox. Easy to apply. Just leave on for 20 minutes.


The results are wonderful! I'm definitely going to be placing an order for these eye pads!

Christmas Day at Our House

This year we scaled back on the Christmas gifts for the adults. Christmas, at our house, was all about the kids! I'm so glad we decided to do a little tree this year. Everyone really liked the decorations.


No early wakeups. The kids opened their gifts around 11 am. It gave me plenty of time to make breakfast and enjoy a cup of coffee.

The girls received new pajamas. A traditional Christmas gift when I was growing up.

Gaia wore her new thermal pajamas from Old Navy. Everyone thought she looked adorable in them.


Another wonderful Christmas day in the Berry-Morin house.
