Homestyle stew recipe and Easy Biscuits too!!

Beef cubes, potatoes, onions, celery and carrots make a great stew.   Mom would buy a huge piece of chuck(3 lb. or larger) trim and cube as much as she could  from a large chuck roast.  Most times she would buy one with a bone in it and  use what she couldn't scrape off that bone and make a pot of beef soup. 

She would make her own noodles which she called haluski (not to be confused with the noodles and cabbage haluski). 

 Grandma taught her how to make noodles. Their recipe was the same for those noodles as those that  they would make for pasta.  Very simple recipe that they new by heart.  No writing down for Grandma but fortunately Mom would decide later in her life to start writing down in a notebook lots of her recipes. I certainly have benefited by that!!
