Shepherd’s Sausage Stew. New Song From Flaming June.

Shepherd's Sausage Stew


I’m not sure of the origin of Shepherd’s Stew, but I do know that it is a New England staple.

While trying to find out more about the stew, I saw it described on one site as “scrumptious”. I don’t think I have ever used that term on ISITK, but I’m gonna tell you that this sausage stew packed with vegetables is really scrumptious. I’m sure that Shepherds love it.

The fairy tale Rumpelstiltskin always creeped me out. Such an evil little gold-spinning critter.

Rumplestiltskin, new from Flaming June, also gives me chills, but in a much better way.

Check out Flaming June on Facebook and the Website, where you can learn upcoming tour dates in England and also buy the music. The new EP comes out on April 15th.
