We are back from our quick trip back home to visit my mother-in-law. At 96 years-old she just entered a nursing home. It has been tough on everyone but being 550 miles away from her as she makes this transition has been heartbreaking. She has gone from stage 3 Alzheimer’s to almost stage 7 in 18 months. She no longer knows who we are or where she is. She never wanted to go to a nursing home, ever. To see her like this is emotionally draining for everyone.
But, we are home now. We needed good comfort food to ease our weary body and souls and this was it. We are still getting ready for our big vacation so I am trying to limit the amount of groceries I am bringing home. This recipe was perfect for using what I had on stock in the pantry and freezer.
