Mike’s Secret Stew Stuff

This recipe is designed for a 5 quart Crock-Pot.  For stove top cooking a 6 quart pot would be more appropriate.

The flavor is delicate.

What’s inside that energy drink? Sugar, acid, caffeine + ‘fairy dust’


Energy Drinks and Battery Acid – what a combination

In our political and military naivete, the Armistice was meant to be the end of the, “War To End All Wars.” Two decades later it started all over again. Veteran’s Day is on November 11 in the US.
