Chunky Chicken Stew

Chunky Chicken Stew

How is the weather where you live?

We are in South Texas.In this month of May,i can not tell you in what season we are in.I don’t know when can i put my warm winter cloths away.My plants are totally confused.It doesn’t know if it should bloom or wait.I check weather forecast everyday .Habit which i didn’t think was possible until i started living here .There is a saying here in Texas,there are four season and in Texas you can get all four in one day.I agree 🙂

Couple of days back,we had stroke of cold front.Those up north can laugh at me but  we don’t need sleet or snow to tell us it is cold.We are ready to snuggle with coffee and a book when mercury touches 50F and wind is whipping with cloud cover.So one such evening,i made chunky chicken stew which is perfect for the chilly day {even if that chill is sandwiched in between 85F days :-)).Would you agree?

Stew  was hit before i tasted it.What else you would conclude when your 4 yr old keeps coming to dip the bread in stew, while you are trying to photograph it 🙂
