When going from 80 degrees to 15 degrees, it’s important to keep things applicable so you aren’t jolted into a state of shock.
Thick sweater? Cozy socks? A fire? Glass of Pinot?
Check, check, check, check.
All that’s missing is this wintery sausage stew complete with garlic, wilted spinach, and cannelloni beans to thicken it up perfectly for pita bread dunking.
Smoked paprika sprinkled over it all sends it over the top and for just a brief moment, an oh so brief moment, you’ll be blissfully happy amongst the 15 degrees.
Who am I kidding? Get me back to fish tacos and Sauvignon blanc!
