Let me know how it turns out!!! Besides for my sauce and meatballs, that is my wife and daughter's favorite dish.
...to the grocery store, Steve O. Perfect timing and a great recipe!

A little chilly here in Erie, Pa. today. A reminder that winter is just around the corner. Anyhow that means it's stew time!!!! Cube up some potatoes, about 1/2 the crockpot. then add a small bag of baby carrots, one big onion sliced, 4 bay leaves, 3 cloves garlic minced, 1/4to1/2 cup red wine. Add 1 can cream of celery soup, 1 can cream of mushroom soup. Brown both sides of a 3lb beef roast in olive oil season roast to your taste, on bothsides. Put roast in crockpot on top of everything, and pour drippings over it and add 1 can of french onion soup, close lid. Set crockpot on low and let cook for about 8 hrs. Dinner is served!!!!
At least (having not tried Migas in Spain yet) plates were emptied, 2nds were eaten, and my children said was a welcome change from pasta. My daughter said she will stop giving most of our old bread to the horse she rides (a sign of HUGE approval, as she adores that horse), and make migas more often. We ate it w/chicken pieces, tomatos, and onions.
Did the Migas turn out OK ?

I like it too, though the last time I had any was over a decade ago at the funeral of a friend who was something of a connoisseur (with the attitude to match). His friends, several of whom appeared to have brought bottles to pass around, consumed vast quantities of the stuff in his honor.
are my favorite
I like Caol Ila and Bunnahabain
I don't like whisky in warm weather, much better in front of a fire in the winter, listening to good music

What a wonderful and romantic whisky adventure! But Martin would NOT like this story, as he keeps telling me that fine whisky is to be sipped delicately and enjoyed, and not for getting schockered on! We will probably have our bottle for the next 5 years or so, as he promised only to drink it when we are together.
funny you should mention that
...my wife and I fell into eachothers arms for the first time many years ago after sharing much of a bottle of Lagavulin on hot tropical night in Java Indonesia (this is true I promise)! She says the stuff was her downfall, but we drank toasts with it at our subsequent wedding and we always have a bottle stashed somewhere for special occasions!
Have old bread that was soaking, so will make una migas hoy. Usually I made stuffing for a chicken from old bread, but will try something different.
As for your question about whisky, am not such a knowledgeable person myself, but my best friend Martin here is a real connisseur (sp?). For our mutual 40th birthday party in April we got a bottle of 16 year old Lagavulin, which is an Islay single malt, and according to the box, Lagavulin COULD be "one of the oldest distillery sites in Scotland". Am finding the flavor quite nice, but as I said am no specialist. Do enjoy that this one tastes dark and peaty though.
