“I had the stew meat thawed. I had the onions cut. I had the seasonings out. Then I realized that the potatoes were rotten and it was too late to call my husband to have him pick up potatoes on the way home. So I scoured the fridge for inspiration. DH and the kids all told me I should make this again so I'm typing it up. It should be easy to halve for a smaller family.”
