We made beef stew Sunday night – a whole giant crock pot of it. And I mean a GIANT crock pot, because we cannot cook small here for some reason, even though its just the three of us here most of the time. So needless to say, we have been eating beef stew for days, lunch and supper, and I was getting tired of it yesterday. But then I thought to myself that there are so many people who would be so grateful to be eating this beef stew every at every meal, because they are hungry and cold. So today, I am grateful for beef stew, and the kitchen we cook it in, and the dining room we eat it in, and the house we live in, because not everyone has even those basic amenities.
