Beef & Vegetable Stew

Beef and Vegetable StewWell, it was a cold and snowy weekend! And I LOVED it.  We got almost a foot of snow! Which for the Portland area, is a lot.  I took the weekend “off” and just enjoyed it.  This was the perfect dinner to end the weekend with. Beef stew is one of my favorite meals on a cold day.  I usually make it in the crock pot but I wanted to try something a little different. I’ve been looking for new recipes that are healthier versions of my favorite ones.  This is a fun recipe because you use squash instead of potatoes.  I was a little unsure how I would like it because potatoes are the best thing ever. However, I was happily surprised when I loved it.  I really didn’t miss the potatoes and love the flavor the squash brings to the dish.
