Growing up, if it was rainy, cold, or cloudy, no matter the season, Mama made a big pot of Salmon Stew. A lot of times my sister and I would insist upon eating this favorite meal with lights off and lit oil lamps on the table. Some of my favorite memories center around this soup and “blackouts.” This week has started off rainy and cloudy, so the tradition of Salmom Stew continues at the Hoos.
1.7-8 red potatoes
2. 1 can of salmon
3. 2 tbs. butter
4.8 cups of milk
5. Salt and pepper to taste (I usually do about a tbs. of each)
6. Optional: onions, peas, corn
1. Peel and chop the potatoes.
4. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes.
