On a frosty day such as this, it's wonderful to have food in the freezer and pantry to make a warm evening meal of roast beef, potatoes, carrots and homemade sauerkraut. Candles were a nice touch to surprise Daddy when he got home from work.
From another evening, a big pot of oxtail and kale soup. Oxtail is tender and delicious, by the way, a main ingredient in Vietnamese Pho soup. My semi-vegetarian eight year old is not impressed, but she will sip around the edges of her bowl.
These are definitely winter-style meals to warm and fill you up!
