Stew pt. 2 and September DOG!

I baked the same stew as the previous recipe with the few tweaks mentioned. The low-sodium cream of mushroom worked just as planned and picked up the flavor of the stew by letting you taste more than the salt. A few of the bacon pieces were not as crispy which some people complained about: I guess people don't want a whole bacon. I was in a time rush otherwise I would have made all the bacon crispy. The finished product was delicious and a very solid addition to my repertoire.
