Am attempting to make my mum's stew recipe. However, due to a combination of

a) Me not thinking that the last time I was involved in making stew it was for 9 people, not 3


b) The inconvenience of vegitables... I mean, you have to buy them in integer units of one or greater!

...I now seem to have rather a lot of stew bubbling away...

I don't like being wasteful. On the bright side, I haven't wasted much money (root veg being cheap) but it always seems a terrible shame. I think getting the amount right is the main problem with my cooking.

It really ought to keep for a couple of days in the fridge.

I'd suggest it for lunch, too, if it hadn't suddenly warmed right up.

Well, I dunno if it's the same for non-veggie stews, but my solution was always to "eat it all anyway". Cos veggie stews of the variety I make are usually so low cal that you are hungry an hour later anyway and so Eat More and not be Incredibly Greedy in the process. (Or so I pretend)

You win. Well, Tom wins too. We ate loads more than I thought we would, and then Sarah's snaffled some for lunch tomorrow too.

For those that are interested, the Stew of great Stewness contained

3 large baking potatoes
3 small reddish pototoes
1 normal onion
1 red onion
1 swede
1 turnip
1 sweet potato
3 beetroots
3 carrots
3 parsnips
Many whole mushrooms
Some lamb (diced)
Turkey stock (thanks, CTS!)
Bisto granuels
Oxo cubes

All I can say is that's a *lot* of peeling :-)
