With Best Wishes for the Coming Year...

Obachan's End-of-year Tomato Stew...?

I don’t think anyone remembers this post from 2004, but yes, this is a comforting, nutritious fridge-emptying dish that I typically make at the end of the year. It has become almost like a ritual before I leave my apartment to spend New Year’s Day at my parents’ house with my parents, my sister and her husband and kids.

It’s such a nice, sunny day today and the steam coming up from the soup is really comforting me now. (Hope you can see it in the photo.) It's a perfect lunch to have on the day before my busiest day of the year.

Well, this is my last post here on this blog this year.
Thank you for your support and friendship in 2006. Hope you keep coming back in 2007.
I wish you all a happy new year!

My mother makes a stew very similar to that using ox tails.

Oh, you had this kind of stew when you were small? I wouldn’t have liked this kind of vegetable-rich stew when I was a kid, but now it’s my favorite.
Best wishes for the New Year!
