Grandma's Gift

When I got married my grandmother paid me a visit, bringing with her a can of stew and a box of Bisquick and a recipe she'd handed over to all of her grandchildren as they started their own families. She knew from raising five boys how busy a homemaker can get and how making dinner can sometimes feel like a very unpleasant chore. She told me, "When you have a day where you are feeling worn out and can't think of what to make, just open this can of stew and dump some biscuits on top and you've got yourself supper!" I loved this charming gift and I do use this recipe and my family loves it!

My grandmother is now 93 years old and doesn't get out much, but I hope she knows how her simple gift of a can of stew and biscuit mix is something I will pass down to my own children. A very simple, but cherished family heirloom.

You have probably seen this or even made it for your own family. If you haven't, give it a try! It's super easy, super yummy comfort food made with lots of love!
