A hint of cinnamon

Eight degrees yesterday morning.  Today:  14.  Cinnamon, let me in.  It just sounded warm . . . in my steamy fireside stew.  (I’m  imagining the hearth.  That would have been picture perfect.)  I laced this pot of stew with cinnamon, orange, garlic and ginger.  Tonight’s version might just rotate around our table again next week.

Check out your vegetable supply.  Do you have any root vegetables on hand?  Carrots?  Potatoes?  Surely an onion.  I splurged on a loaf of Challah and a wedge of Havarti.  This meal sustained us beyond my expectations.
