There are so many reasons I feel blessed having my Grandma living with us every other week - something she has done since #3 was born over 7 years ago.
One of those reasons is that I am able to learn the recipes that she made for us when we were children. Tonight I am making a stew that I remember eating at her house on those cold Minnesota winter evenings. Now, it isn't cold here today - far from it. But I have carrots and potatoes from the garden and I had a craving for it this morning. Thus, stew!
(for those of you wondering, I do plan to feed my family something other than stew at some point. I am not sure when that might be, but honestly, I can cook more than soups and stews...)
