It's chilly, overcast and the trees are in their final display of fall glory. Perfect weather for stew! Nice shoulder roast, lots of wine, double-smoked bacon from the local butcher, more wine, lots of garlic, 7 secret herbs and spices, and miscellaneous vegs. A big glass of cabernet, buttermilk biscuits, mixed green salad & it's almost time for dinner.
It will look better when the peas go in, but they're a last minute addition.
This is a perfect time of year for big pots o' lots of food.
