Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Got Wine?  How about stew meat - venison, beef or both?  Then this stew is for you.  I used Three Ships to the Wind from Adams County Winery and a mix of both beef and venison.  Don't have wine?  Use all broth.

  1 Tbl Olive Oil                                                                        3 Cloves Garlic, Minced
  1 1/2 Lb Stew Meat, Beef OR Venison                                    2 Cups Carrots
  1 Tsp Dried Thyme                                                                 2 Cups Potatoes, Diced
  1/2 Tsp Salt                                                                            2 Tbl Cornstarch
  1/2 Tsp Pepper                                                                       4 Tbl Water
  2 Cups Beef Broth                                                                 1 Cups Peas
  3/4 Cup Red Wine, Semi Dry Or Dry                                     

Heat 1/2 tbl of the oil in a large pot and brown stew meat (cut into 1 inch pieces).  Remove and set aside.  Add remaining oil and add the garlic and thyme.  Cook until fragrant and return the stew meat to the pan.  Add the salt, broth and wine and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 20 minutes.  Stir in carrots and onions and simmer until soft.  Dissolve cornstarch in water and add to the beef mixture along with the peas..  Stir to combine thoroughly and cook until just beginning to thicken.
