A Las Vegas fall

Fall has finally arrived in Las Vegas. I hear the angels singing! The high today was only 77 degrees! This may not seem like much to the average person but, for the last six months it hasn't gotten below 90. Do ya feel that? Toasty! This cooler weather is huge, and it's what I've been waiting for since I got sick of the scorching heat in June....which is how it is every year for me.
Ya know how I celebrated the cool weather? I made some comfort food: beef stew. I do not claim to be a good cook, but this is something that I can make pretty well. It's simple, and as long as you cook it all day, you're gold.
Want my recipe? Email me at Tasha@thehousewifediaries.com.



I cooked my stew all day, with my 20 pound kitty, Nemo, begging for a taste by rubbing at my feet each time I stopped to stir the pot. Like he needs any more food!
I even splurged and bought Ava her first pumpkin of the season. It's a small "pumkin pie" one, but with how sweet this one is, who could make it into a pie?
Happy fall!

That sure looks yummy! Would love the recipe. ;o)

So, are you going to make your own pumpkin pie with that pumpkin? I made my first one, from scratch, last year. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be.

MMMMMMMMMM.....That looks tasty! I would love your recipe! Nemo is so darn cute! He looks just like my kitties!

Oh yeah, and it was only in the 40's here today! It was COLD!! We actually had the fireplace going all day to keep the house warm. Are you excited to be in Colorado soon? I know I'm excited to see you!

Yum! I love comfort food especially from the crock pot once it starts getting cooler outside.

I had beef stew this week too!! I made Irish beef stew that even called for Guiness in it. Yum!! I am ecstatic it's finally fall too. Can you believe how cool it was today?? Next Im making a big bowl of chili and a pot roast to usher in fall. Umm, but not both the same night.

You think 70 is cool weather????!!!!! Haha-Come to IL where we are still wearing shorts in 70s and probably 60s. I loved when I was in Vegas in December and it was 60 outside and I was in pants and a sweatshirt and the locals were donning fur trimmed winter coats complaining about how chilly it was! I giggle at them.

This beef strew looks so good! 70 sounds like perfect weather to me. Nemo is a cutie too. The way that stew looks, I can't blame him for wanting a taste. =D

Haha, I made beef stew last week too. Yum yum! I for one, hate cold weather (and, yes, 70 is too cold for my taste!) I'm a flip-flop-tank top-n-skirts kinda girl. Guess it's time to drag out my long sleeves and socks (shudder). I had to wear a jacket today. A jacket!! sigh...I already miss summer.

A fat kitty is a happy kitty. Nemo needs more. My orange cat weighs in around 23 pounds. He loves his mommy and his food. His four pound counter-part will eat anything...and particularly loves dog food.
