Winter Stew

Recipe by Jane McGettigan

We loved this dish on a December day when we came in from school cold and wet. It filled us up and mother would have it ready for us and the best part there was only two pots to be washed. So we loved it even more. 

I now make this stew for my own kids and they love it to.
