as i left work yesterday ready to get a run in on the trails,
it started to rain … so i detoured to the grocery store.
all i could think about was a warm bowl of beef stew,
& this recipe turned out absolutely perfect.
& with a new recipe i was slightly anxious about how it would turn out.
he showed up with a big smile on his face and a warm embrace,
just as excited as i was about having a big bowl of stew on a cold night.
we sipped red wine while catching up our day & the weekend,
& he raved about dinner, and also my cooking skills.
i swear, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach …
& i do believe he was smitten by the time he left!
