This was made on 10/21/08 for mine and SO's dinner.I did make a few changes to the recipe, but I don't think that affected the final outcome.The changes that were made are as follows,I cut the meat into bite-sized pieces then seasoned and browned the meat.The onions were cooked with the meat to give the meat a bit more flavor.( left out celery, we don't eat it )All I had were canned stewed tomatoes, so I drained the juice and set the tomatoes aside. To the remaining juice, enough water was added to equal 4 cups.For the frozen veggies I used leftovers which had come from previous meals.I let that come to a boil to heat them through.Then reduced the heat, and added the tomatoes.After adding the flour and water, I let it simmer for a bit.If this is made again I'm going to brown the meat in the flour, instead of adding it at the end. Because I thought, it would have a less "doughy" taste. My SO thought it was good "as is "and for that I'm giving this a 4* star rating. "Keep Smiling :)"
