Winter lingers on. While I do not like the cold, I like the food that we tend to consume in the cold weather months. Stew is one of the meals that falls on that "Top 10" list of comfort foods. I go the easy route with mine. Market Day has 1 pound packages of stew meat that is already cut into chunks. Into the crock pot it goes with sliced potatoes, carrots and celery and a few dashes of seasonings. A few hours later, dinner is ready. How easy and yummy is that?
