Each month the Member Affairs Committee selects a recipe (submitted by staff, committee members, and co-op member-owners) for the Meal of the Month (MOM). I made a batch of Country Beef Stew in early November to demo in the store, and it was very popular. The recipe was adapted by Co-op member-owners Chelsey DiPasquale-Hunton and Erin Thompson from a recipe contributed by our Cordata Deli Manager, Paul Manthe. I did add the optional green beans (I used fresh), and my receipt totaled $10.60. It was fantastic stew, and could be easily adapted for vegetarians.
