It’s been a cold month or so in SoCal. Of course cold is relative. Having adapted to the warmth of this region, low 60s constitutes chilly at least.
Menu-wise, I’ve been drawn to soups and stews and other warming dishes. It’s funny, people on the East Coast are breaking out their shorts and tank tops with the raising of American flags on Memorial Day, and here on the West Coast, we’re donning scarves and sweaters.
Here’s a great recipe based on traditional Polish Hunter’s Stew, which consists of mostly cabbage and other veggies with sausage. It’s so velvety and nourishing.
