White Beans Stew

January 20, 2012

Like I said in previous posts, preparing a meal, does not have to be  a stressful endeavour, unless you’re on “Chopped” the tv show. I want you to feel free to change any of the ingredients you don’t like from a recipe and make it your own, the overall outcome will be the same.  Have fun!
