|Eischens with the Jones'|
Is motherhood easier these days? I don't see the frantic deer in headlights look on young women today that Marsha and I had. Do today's young moms just know more? Are they better at mothering than we were? When my sons talk about their childhood they make it sound like they were raised by wolves. When I told this to my friend she laughed and said, "They were!". She had girls and I had boys and we had different mothering styles:)
Oh yeah, the navarin printanier. Ron really likes lamb. My husband, Gary, really likes it too. Me not so much and Marsha not at all! I think it was fortuitous that lamb stew was on the French Friday plan and Ron was here. He and Gary loved it. Ron told me he can't stop thinking about it. Isn't that why we go to so much trouble to prepare exceptional meals for our loved ones? "Without a fine meal the crude realities of existence would be unbearable." That's so true, at least in my world!
I forgot to add the peas and that might be a good thing. I love peas but they're flavor can be so dominant! Without them the stew was delicate and delicious. Just about perfect and I'm not a lover of lamb. This broth could make me a believer.
