Vegetable barley beef stew

As I wait out the week for my next doctor’s appointment to see how this will progress, I still have to function. Sort of. I’m trying not to sink too far into depression as I wait for this to end. It took fourteen months to get pregnant and after one month it is no more. This is not my choice. This is my body’s choice. I have PCOS and we had no idea if we could even get pregnant without drugs. We can and that’s good to know.

To get myself out of the depression I’d fallen into, I decided to make dinner. I don’t care if it’s summer, beef stew still sounded really good. And I had everything on hand.

Vegetable barley beef stew
1.5 pounds beef stew meat
1 can each corn, green beans, and stewed tomatoes
12 oz bag frozen peas and corn
1 onion, chopped
1 carton beef broth

1. Preheat oven to 250F.
2. Place all ingredients in Dutch oven.
3. Bake for 3-4 hours.

I normally serve this with oatmeal muffins, but Italian bread works in a pinch.
