PaPa's Cure-All Vegetable Stew

Dea Bishop


When I was young & sick my PaPa would fix this stew for me. I swore it would cure everything from sore throat to colds to flu and more. He would even make extra to freeze so he would have it on hand just for me. I now make it for my boys, and my oldest swears it cures his ailments too. I believe!
