I make this about once a week. It's super-easy to put together, and you can do it in the crock pot or even on the stove top on low heat for three hours. Delicious and smells amazing. || jools’s favourite beef stew | Jamie Oliver | Food
Butternut Squash with Pecans and Blue Cheese: This has many strings to its bow: it serves as a vegetarian alternative to the Christmas turkey; it gussies up a plate of cold leftover turkey; it adds the right balance of mellow warmth and tang to any plain wintry dish; it is a good whole meal on days when you just feel fleshed-out.
