Easy Beef Stew

This is simply delicious~ how could it NOT be? You've browned and carmelized the meat and built beautiful flavor with some basic ingredients. I used 2 lbs of stew meat, not 3, just because that's all I had, and used ketchup instead of tomato paste for the same reason. 2 large Yukon Gold potatoes..Bellisimo!

I think this just might fit the bill, Bruce! I'm making a reservation for now~ I can always shift it if need be, later. Very excited about this trip. :)

My fella will be celebrating a bday on the weekend of May 13, and we're coming from Seattle.(Via overnight train-- how romantic!) and staying at the Fairmont on Mason. I was thinking that on one night we'll check out the famed Tonga Room since we love all things Vintage. I'd appreciate some suggestions about:
1) A French Bistro for dinner or lunch (not too over the top $$$)
2) Any other quaint, creative spots for dining which you think are cozy and wonderful?
Of course, any other suggestions thrown my way, i.e. sweet little music spots are A-Ok, too.

Thank you so much! If you need any help re: the Seattle/Olympia area give me a shout.
