Paprika Short-Rib Beef Stew

 Aw... Autumn is in the air! So pulling out the cozy  Autumn recipes and  let's see what's in the freezer...
Short Ribs it is!
I'm blessed with many friends who share recipes, this is Autumn all on plate! Thankful for dear friends, today, tomorrow and always! Thank You Connie,dear friend!

As I was  setting up the  ingredients, chopping away. Got my pepper grinder out, grinding away. Oh what a mess! There's GOT to BE a BETTER WAY to measure this pepper!

 Thinking...wait a minute! I  have a different, neater way to measure pepper out! Look what I found at my shopping excursion to Ikea! These cute lil bowls, I had to have! And they were really, I mean really reasonable! They come in a pack of 4. Came in handy as you can see when using your pepper grinder!

Hope you try this Autumny dish, and remember to add to your Ikea list these cute lil' bowls. Can't wait to see what else  we can do with them! Share your ideas if you pick these cute lil things up!
