Veggie Dog Stew and Happy New Year!!!

Since we’re nearing the end of this wonderful trip I’m now trying to empty out this fridge and freezer before we leave. It seems like it’s all I’ve been doing all December. The result of that for last nights dinner was a creamy stew with hot dogs and vegetables served over rice. It was yummy and even my poor sick Noah enjoyed it.

Tonight we’re spending time with amazing friends at  a potluck dinner. I hope you all will have a great New Years Eve and beginning of 2012!!!!

2 tbs ketchup
2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 cup corn
1 cup zucchini, diced
