Frogmore Stew

A big pot is a plus..

A big bowl helps, too!

Please note: No frogs were harmed in the making of this stew.

The first Christmas that Chris and I were together was 1989. We'd decided to get married about a month before, around Thanksgiving. We were next door neighbors. (a story for another post) and decided to get a tree together. Then we decided to make Frogmore Stew for dinner that night. Little did we know that we were starting a tradition that would be a necessity every year after on Christmas tree-trimming night. This year's version was made in our new kitchen of our new house, our first holiday season here. And may I add that I love cooking on a gas stove? Water heats up so much faster! Quickest Frogmore Stew ever!

Ingredients: potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes, small corn on the cob (this year, from our aunt and uncle's garden, safely tucked into the freezer all these months), kelbasa - sliced, a bag of crab boil seasoning, and shrimp.
