The days are cooling down and I do have to admit that I don't like this time of the year. It's hard to motivate myself to do anything. It's dark in the morning, dark early at night and cold. I really should have been a bear. I would be perfectly happy hibernating through the winter. Not my favorite season.
Except for Christmas. I love Christmas. It's the only thing that gets me through now to December 26th.
This harvest beef stew is perfect. It uses up a lot of what you already have leftover from your garden. You can easily adapt and use some of them to include in this dish.
Grab your blanket, some of our easy under an hour bread (we love using it to make rolls) and a cup of this soup and you've got a hearty late fall meal.
