Winter Warm-Up Beef Simmer in July?????

   Yes, I know this appears to be a strange recipe choice for me to be blogging about at the end of July but, there really is a great explanation.  A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend a pre-showing of a soon to be released movie – Julie & Julia.  The movie is based on two books, My Life in France by Julia Child with Alex Prud’homme (I have read this book) and Julie & Julia by Julie Powell (I have not read this book).

Strata Strategy

When my son moved back home from college for the summer he brought along one of his football teammates to live with us for a few months. After just a couple of weeks I realized I needed a new strategy for feeding these two hearty eaters. I would prepare a meal with “leftovers” in mind assuming I had made enough to feed them not just one meal but, with leftovers, two or possibly three meals. That strategy quickly flew out the door as the boys consumed every bite of the original meal, night after night. I was simply running out of ideas on what to fix for dinner that would satisfy their ravenous appetites. What’s a mom to do? Develop a new strategy – a Strata Strategy!
