Beef Stew and Date and Nut Balls

It has finally begun to snow here in Southern Maine. It feels like winter outside and everyone needs a little warming up. Tuesday morning here at The Blue Elephant I made Beef Stew; a rich, hearty stew. Marjorie's version of the recipe was not far off from any other version I've ever made. It was loaded with vegetables and beef.

We serve the stew in either a cup or a bowl and at our regular soup price, $2.95 for a cup and $5.95 for a bowl and with a slice of bread. The stew can also be ordered with our half sandwich and cup of soup special for $4.95.

For a yummy treat I made Date and Nut Balls. They were one of the easiest desserts I've ever made. They are very delicious too! After mixing and baking all the ingredients in the oven, you stir up what's in the pan and as Marjorie says "Butter up," roll the mixture between your hands and make little balls. An excellent Christmas treat.
