My dad worked 16 hour days 7 days a week, but he would pop in for supper, eat and was gone. It was important to us to be together and plus, he worked hard. he was a hungry man!
When I think of those dinners, a few things come to mind, meat loaf, fried chicken, pork chops, a nice roast or beef stew.
My husband and I made it a point, after he was out of the military of course, to sit down each night and have a family meal. One where we engaged in conversation with each other and our boys. Hearing about their day, what happened, joys of growing up, the lows of teenage life, girl trouble and so on. It was important.
One of our favorite meals was beef stew served with fresh green beans and oven baked corn bread.
So today I'm sharing my version of beef stew and my friend Jutta is sharing her version. Be sure to stop by and say HI to her for me :)
