For Caleb and me, this week was Valentine’s week. Every day I got or did or made food for Caleb. There were heart-shaped cinnamon rolls, cupcakes, red velvet-chocolate chip cookies, notes, the movie Drive, blah blah blah. Today, I made his favorite once-every-blue-moon meal:
BEEF STEW IN A BREAD BOWL!!!
This is way too easy. Buy a loaf of Hawaiian bread.
Then, using a bread knife, cut a circle in the top. Leaving about an inch of bread on the perimeters, cut a cavern into the loaf.
Cover the insides with olive oil (just to seal the bread so that when you pour in the stew it doesn’t automatically seep into the bread.) Stick the loaf in the oven on a cookie sheet on about 375 degrees for 10-20 minutes. It’s up to you when the outside of the loaf is too brown.
Finally, cook your choice of beef stew and pour into the bread bowl.
We just ate this, and Caleb thoroughly demolished over 3/4s of it.
