It's snowing!!! I didn't sleep well last night. I kept waking up with fear that the storm was going to come early and I had yet to stock up at Whole Foods. It did not come early and we made there and back safely. So now I'm just tired. But! I have lots to be thankful for, including another adorable bag of flageolet beans, a fennel bulb AND some too-good-to-be-true stewing beef!!! I'm so grateful that there is meat inside our home and snow outside it. Be gone you Big Mac commercial and let's give a warm welcome to some beef stew. Beans tonight, beef tomorrow. And, of course, more raspberry crumb bars.
side note -a little bet has been waged on what the Boston Globe will headline this storm. My husband thinks it is only a matter of time before we start reading "Blinding Nemo". I'm not so sure. Actually, I am sure. I'm sure that he will be the only one to have coined this terrible pun. I'll let you know who wins.
