Recipe by Patti McD

One of my favorite meals growing up, I've adjusted this to make it easier for todays cooks to put together.

Very "homely" and nice stew. Although I did use any salt I still found it a bit too salty. Maybe the bouillon cubes I used. Next time I'll use only two cubes. Added a potato to draw out some of the saltiness and that helped. The veggies I used were a mix of onion, leek, carrot, pastinak, peas, string beans, cauliflower, broccoli, mushroom and spinach. (that's what one can find in the frozen veggie bags here). Easy to make and wonderful smell while simmering. Made for PAC Fall '07. Thanks for posting.
