Elephant Stew

READY IN: 1608hrs
Recipe by cheryl

The kids should like reading this one...it's an adaptation of a recipe from a July 1968 cookbook that was published by the local newspaper. I bought it at a garage sale and was entertained for hours by the great sounding recipes and the sponsor's ads. A new gas range, $118; a new full size refrigerator with automatic defrosting! $168... Mary Ferris had submitted a version of this recipe.
