Good Old Fashioned Beef Stew

 When you cook dinner for 20 kids every day, you learn to follow sales closely.  My grocery store had a BOGO sale on chuck roasts last week and we were having one of the last snowy days of the year so I decided to make stew for the after school kids.  I don't make stew all that often so the recipe turned into an add a bit if this and some of that.  The end result was a delicious stew. I made 18 quarts of it.

 I made 8 quarts of mashed potatoes to go with it.

And I made 60 rolls which...guess what?  I forgot to take a photo of!  I'm either losing my mind or cooking too much.  The kids LOVED the stew.  The Blog Tech said that they filled their plates over and over and ate and ate.  There was a bit leftover and they divided it up and took it home.
