Irish Stew Preparation, Recipe and Video

A slightly different recipe than this, but in 2022 we are finally serving Irish Stew to our Lunchroom guests.  The social isolation brought on from Covid-19, means I find myself not hosting The Lunchroom  @ Holy Trinity. So, I prepared the Irish Stew that we had hoped to serve on St. Patrick’s Day. I also made a video of me preparing this stew. It’s a first attempt to film using a LED ring light with my Cell phone as the…Continue readingIrish Stew Preparation, Recipe and Video
