***Gram has lots of tiny little pieces of paper cut out from magazines, reader's digests, newspaper, etc. This recipe was on a 1x2 inch piece of paper from what seems to be a magazine. I don't know if she ever even made Meat Stew-but she must have thought it would've been good to take the time to cut it out and keep it.
