Today is a perfect day to cozy up at home with a nice warm fire. The freshly fallen snow and the chilly temperatures makes one want to cuddle up in a blanket next to a warm fire and read a good book. Now I know that not everyone can have a fire because of a lack of having a fireplace or wood stove, but one can still cuddle up in a blanket and read a good book.
Another thing that is perfect on a cold day is a piping hot bowl of beef stew. Beef stew is so satisfying on those cold wintry days. It is filling and reminds one of days when mom would make beef stew for dinner and it was amazing.
One of the easiest ways to do this is to make it in the crockpot. I have a super quick and easy recipe that you are going to just love. One can just not mess this up it is so easy to make. If you can peel and cut vegies you can make this.
Give this a try and amaze your family.
