Of course on taters! I have some red ones...erm...do I need to peel them? I imagine the skin falling off and being icky in the stew, so I think yes. I'm interested in the incorporation of other tubers, but they can't be sweet because Boyfriend won't eat it.
I shall review my cookbooks for more inspiration. I'll probably make the stew on Thursday, but pick up what I need tonight (must also get broth in a box, unfortunately, as I'm out of homemade broth).
This weekend is going to rock for a few reasons (I need an updated "looking forward to" list): Saturday, I go to the chiropractor, then have early birthday/Father's Day dinner at my parents house (swordfish kebabs!!!). Sunday, I will probably hang with my dad and finish up that side table project. And then Monday gets special status since it's my birthday and now that I'm not super depressed, I'm looking forward to getting extra pampering from Boyfriend. Okay and then next week is 2.5 yrs with Boyfriend and whatever mystery date he's been planning.
Boyfriend job status: So we got an awesome unexpected check in the mail. Well, Boyfriend did. A while back, his car payment company said they'd mischarged him for something and he could either get a check for the balance or have it go towards his loan balance. He said he wanted it to to towards the balance, but he just received the check today. Perfect timing! So he's going to hold onto it for rent and that takes the pressure off finding work immediately. Interview as a line cook was today and he said the chef was nice and that the job is a good spot for intro to cooking industry, esp. if he's interested in culinary school (which he is). The chef said something about looking into available shifts a few nights a week, so it's part-time, but it's something, and it's promising. We are both very happy and relieved and looking forward to hearing more next week hopefully on both jobs. Boyfriend is feeling optimistic and if offered, wants both jobs so he can get experience in security and food industry, but we'll have to see
