Mr. Farmer and sons worked with, sorted and drove lot calves this morning. This morning….with the temperatures hovering around zero and a north breeze. Wasn’t fun. Cattle did their best not to cooperate and the men came in quite cold and warn out for lunch.
We love eating soup in winter. And today is no exception. Mr. Farmer could smell the simmering salmon as he walked through the kitchen door….put a smile on his face.
We liked yet another version of this age-old timelessly great stew. Hope you like it, too.
