  1. Hi there, thank you very much for that. I was looking for a hearty stew recipe to help me get through the xmas time, and this sounds just what I wanted. I found an entire stew recipes site here too that seems to have lots of good ideas, maybe you can get some more inspiration there. Anyway, thanks again, I will bookmark and read more another time 😉
