So to celebrate Phil's homecoming I decided to make his favorite food, Beef Stew! I already had the meat in the freezer and I found a packet of mix in the basement so it wasn't really that hard. The worst part was chopping the carrots that decided to go flying across the cutting board after a freed them from the main part of the carrot stick. I think that it turned out pretty good. Though I did cheat and ended up forgetting to put in the onion. Oh well no one could tell.
