My question is the same as Janet's; had you reheated it yet? If it was
homemade stock it does gel when chilled and thins out when reheated.

My other question is, why would DH refuse to eat stew? There's really no
difference except one is thicker. Is it a texture thing? I much prefer
vegetable (or vegetable beef) stew over the soup, and I'm a soupaholic!
