Over a Cup of Coffee: Making a stew

Last weekend we visited our kids and grandkids (Jody, Cindy, Jessica, and Jaycee). It was a cold, windy day, and they had just finished putting the makings for potato chowder in the crock pot. Cindy said they would have a nice hot supper for such a cold day. So that made me think that it won’t be long before we’ll be changing the menu from soups and stews to barbecued hamburgers and steaks. This week’s column features a recipe for a great stew. I’ve made it a lot of times. Enjoy during this cold spell.
