The Hugga Bunch and a recipe

Last week, my sister shared another photo that she found of me.  She was afraid I would get mad if she posted it to Facebook -- I told her that as long as I was clothed and didn't look too ridiculous, post away!  :)  Here's the photo: 

I loved the Hugga Bunch dolls when I was a kid!  Has anyone ever seen the movie?  I had almost forgotten about it until last month when we were visiting Ashley and Forrest, and we found out that one of them ( going to mention which one) owns the Hugga Bunch Movie on DVD.  Mike got to watch it for the first time -- I think he was a little creeped out...

It just so happens that you can watch the entire movie on YouTube!  I'll embed part one, and link you up to the other five parts.  Enjoy!

PS - I mentioned on my twitter that I beef stew is the best comfort food, and someone asked if I had a recipe.  Since I'm no good at writing recipes in less that 140 characters, I'll post it over here:

I start by boiling some beef (I like to cut up stir fry beef).  If you aren't aftaid of the pressure cooker like I am, that would definitely be the way to go when cooking the meat.  But I'm a nervous nelly, so I boil. 

While the meat is cooking, I cut up a couple of carrots and boil them.  Then I cut up a few potato and add them to the boiling carrots.  Then I cut about 1/2 an onion, and add that to the boiling water.  (I add them in this order because it takes longer for the carrots to get softer, etc.)  I turn down the head and let the veggies cook until the potatoes start to get a little soft.

Then I add about 1/2 a can of corn and peas to the boiling veggies.  It just depends on what you like -- I really like corn, so I tend to add more.  Oh, and add the beef.  It's probably ready by now.  After all your ingredients are in the pot, add chili sauce.  If you're using the amounts I listed, it will probably take about 1/2 a bottle -- add it a little at a time until you think it tastes good.  Let it cook on low-medium for a few minutes and serve. 

It's really good with Club crackers.  :)
