Last night I made this wonderful stew…although the ingredient list looks long it’s actually very easy to make.  In fact with laptop issues this morning I made the stew quicker than I entered into the recipe box this morning..seems funny that sometimes people won’t cook because it’s too much trouble but in compared to the things we spend countless amounts of time doing it seems cooking offers one of the greater rewards and benefits us as well.  To me eating isn’t a neccesity it’s an experience to enjoy and I am thankful that my family loves to eat as much as I love to cook.
