We're all hunkered down , waiting for the first blast of winter. In this world there are two kinds of people...the ones who love the cold and and the ones who hate it. I'm in the first group, Hubby is in the second. I guess that makes us a mixed marriage, but it's somehow survived 40 winters so far.
Tonight it's supposed to be down in the 20's so I'm going to set the mood so that he won't complain. Maybe a pot of stew and homemade bread will keep him from grousing too much!
Here's a favorite recipe from the NFL Family Cookbook...
