He doesn't like stews of any description... I don't know why - it's
just one of his little quirks. He doesn't much like eating leftovers
either, so I can see a LOT of stew in my immediate future! I think
I'll cook up some chicken breast and add that and just call it
chicken-and-rice... we don't have any stock on hand right now to thin
it out. (it was self-stocking vegetable soup... elderly fresh
tomatoes, carrot, potato, onion, celery, a can of sweetcorn and some
brown rice, with seasonings of course.)
