Caldo De Res (Beef Stew)

My Mother’s version of Caldo De Res is the very best, here is my hard thought out re-creation of how she made it, with all respect Momma. ❤️ Miss you so…….. For me, this soup is the ultimate pot of goodness. Making this brings back sweet memories of having my Momma here on earth with us. I just love good food memories, don’t you?. 1 pound beef shank 2 1/4 pounds beef roast, cut in cubes 2 tablespoons cooking oil 8 cups water 2 cups beef broth 1/4 white onion, chopped 3 cloves garlic, peeled left whole 2 tomatoes cut into 8ths 2 bay leaves 2 tsp salt 1/4 tsp ground cumin 1/8 tsp pepper 1 1/2 cup baby carrots 1-2 large zucchini, chopped large 3 celery stalks, chopped large 3-4 peeled potatoes cut in 4ths 1/2 head cabbage cut into 8ths 3 ears of corn cut in 3rds I used half of this roast Here’s the beef shank I used, very inexpensive to add a whole lot of flavor goodness. Yes indeed the beef shank …

Of Fright Despite

Young lives so fresh and new to life to tangle in a web they are so truly not prepared Tears words of anger, Tears Advice attitudes, really?… I think not Tears surely all response is out of fright despite it all Tears oh yes it’s fear Tears to be so young Tears attempting to survive in this world Tears we have created Tears so full of strife.
