For Dinner Tonight:

Beef & Vegetable Stew
Green Beans
French Bread

When is something a casserole and when is it a stew? I must google this - I think it is something to do with the kind of pot it is cooked in, or at least it was originally. Casserole sounds more genteel and as there was nothing genteel about this meal, stew it is. I made enough for lovely leftovers tomorrow. The flapjacks were the oaty, not the pancakey, kind, made from my sister's recipe. The panful disappeared in a flash!

I'm so glad you're back! Where I live the difference between stew and casserole I think, is that a stew is more akin to soup - definitely liquid-y - while a casserole is more solid. Both may use the same ingredients, but the stew will need to be eaten with a spoon while the casserole can be eaten with a fork.
