Post stew


I must reveal to you a family secret about Lent.

Post stew

It will be about 20 or 25 years, my mother strictly did not eat meat on Friday during Lent. I hated him.

This is always to be eaten, these Fridays, lean stew and the fish was the worst punishment for me.

I rebelled and wanted to eat meat. My mother is thirteen years old, legumes and a sole. I was looking around the house for some sausage, but once I found it and held it in my hands, my conscience would not allow me to sink my teeth into it.

Anyway, now I’m the one putting it lean stew to eat on Lent on Friday, although I later made a ham sandwich for breakfast. Things of rebellion!

Recipe notes

We usually prepare a much larger amount at home with the intention of staying for another day. If after a few days (stored in the refrigerator) you do not use it, freeze it and serve for another occasion.
