TipsPS, by "On Sale" I mean with the Vons Club card. You can get pretty decent pricing on and they deliver. I haven't tried it yet, but I think I shall! They only serve certain areas in Southern California (Safeway in No Cal and maybe elsewhere too...). Also, they often offer special coupons for the service, like "Save $20 on every $100 order or more!" There was one the last time I checked. Ta!

RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE
Yummy Beef Stew, American
This is a stew that I improvised out of what was on sale at Vons today when I went shopping. It occurred to me that I may not be the only one who shops first, then decides what to make out of it. I am a big bargain shopper and try to buy in season and on sale. However, I also buy quality, because you are what you eat!
Get out your olive oil, pick a good stew pot and chop your onions, carrots and turnips. Pour enough flour over the meat to lightly coat follow with the salt and pepper (or you can mix the flour, salt and pepper first, then dredge. I don't bother, I just pour, shake, shake and dredge while I go.) Put your pot on the stove, add your olive oil and turn it on. Once the oil is hot, add the pieces of meat a few at a time so you can brown each piece. When the meat is lightly brown on the surface, add one or two of your chopped onions and sauté for a minute or two. Add red wine, then your water with bullion and finally your chopped veggies. Give it a poke and a stir, cover and let simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, checking occasionally. I added extra pepper, but this is a matter of taste.
1/2 hour before your stew is done, boil some water for the noodles. Follow the instructions on the package for cooking. Serve the stew over the noodles.

I would like to thank Newspaperarchive for putting together such a fabulous service, and placing our Nation's history right at our fingertips. Many of these wonderful recipes are ones I stumbled upon quite by accident while sleuthing through the decades in my quest to assemble the world of the American housewife. RH
