How easy it was to cook for the kids, they loved easy wholesome foods including stew, chili, etc. Most foods I made through habit with nothing written down.
1 or more lbs. stew meat - I use chuck steak or roast and cut it my self.
6-8 stalks of celery
2 beef or vegetable bouillon
Brown the beef in a bit of olive oil, add onion and celery. Brown a little more. Add about 4-6 cups of water, the bouillon, any spices you use and cook until meat is tender. Add carrots, cook awhile longer and add potatoes. I thicken with cornstarch.
Serve with homemade biscuits or french bread.
