Butternut Squash and Kale Beef Stew | Fabtastic Eats With the majority of my days being filled with sweets and holiday baking, by the time dinner rolls around, I’m practically screaming ‘give me some salt!’ I’m pretty sure we eat more sugar in the month of December alone, than the other eleven months combined..at least in this house, that is true.
Butternut Squash and Kale Beef Stew | Fabtastic Eats All thoughts of healthy eats go pretty much out the window for about a month and a half around the holidays, then come January, we’re picking back up where we left off in early November. It’s a fun cycle. I try to keep 0ur dinners on the healthier end at least, but have not been doing so hot with that lately, it’s been all carbs and cheese, and it’s been gooooood.
Butternut Squash and Kale Beef Stew | Fabtastic Eats With the exception of this stew, and a few other dinners of course. This one is fairly healthy, and incredibly tasty. I love beef stew in the winter. I find it so comforting and warm. I have a couple different recipes for beef stew on this here blog, because I like to switch it up! This butternut one, may be my most favorite yet!
With veggies and beef, steaming hot broth, and some crusty bread, this is the ultimate winter comfort meal, loaded with flavor, and perfect to balance out all the holiday goodies. Enjoy!
