Aunt and Uncle Day

Today I am celebrating National Aunt and Uncles Day !

Family Memories :

In my case most of my immediate Aunt and Uncles have passed on but I remember them with food. Aunt Jane who taught special Ed for many years always cooked on the Weekends – Chili Dogs for Saturday and old fashioned Chicken stew with green peas for a side. I still think of her every time I make a pot of Chicken stew .

Creole Chicken Stew

  • 2 chickens -cut up
  • 3 cans tomatoe sauce
  • 2 onions chopped
  • 1/2 green pepper /chopped
  • 1/2 rib celery /chopped
  • 1 clove garlic /chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste

In a large skillet season chicken and brown in oil. Then add the rest of ingredients to the pan -Cover and Cook on low until tender. Serve with white rice.

Make a Family Tree with the kids :

Our family is large and somewhat complicated-so make a basic family tree with Aunt and Uncles. It’s a great time to sit with the kids and explain family and connections…Lisa
