    • You won’t be sorry if you make this one. Yes I had my surgery last Thursday so it’s been a week. Stitches out Friday next week, they are already driving me nuts. I’m so glad it’s over, now time to heal. Thank you for asking. 💕

    • Thank you Janet. It was a fabulous recipe. I thought it was going to taste like beef stew, not at all! It was so strange though, I felt like I should have served it with something like noodles or a vegetables but after tasting it, it was perfect all by itself.
