Keep Shoveling
First dog watch, 3 bells (5:42 pm)

First dog watch, 2 bells (5:11 pm)

I had a problem with Vista on my laptop today when I hooked it up to a projector:

super low desktop resolution

The Best Irish Stew
Posted in Recipes
Afternoon watch, 6 bells (3:03 pm)

I received this in an email from an Irish travel company I used when I planned my honeymoon. I haven't tried it yet, but I would like to soon.

The best Irish Stew

1 pound lean mutton pieces
1 pound carrots
1 pound onions
1 pound potatoes
salt & pepper
pinch of thyme

Place mutton with thyme in sauce pan and add cold water to cover. Bring slowly to the boil and simmer for one hour. Add onions, potatoes, carrots, and peeled and roughly chopped thyme. Season to taste. Continue cooking until vegetables are tender. Adjust seasoning. May be served alone or with cooked green cabbage or sprouts.
