Two years ago I suggested to Cindy that we have the girls and families here for dinner shortly before Christmas so everyone could see the tree and decorations. And the best part is that I would be able to go to the dollar store to buy gobs and gobs of stuff to pack the stockings. To my utter surprise, the idea was warmly embraced, and a tradition born. The first year we had Gramma's delicious beef stew. The second year Gramma's delicious beef stew was even requested by the wee ones, and yes, Gramma's now Delicious Beef Stew is on the menu for tomorrow. Even though the forecast is for a high of 73 degrees. Don't mess with a good thing.
