Today, I sprinted outside to catch a brief glimpse of the sun peaking through Seattle’s clouds.
It might be the first time that I’ve seen the sun since my trip to LA. If the forecast continues as predicted, it also might be the last time I see the sun until the next time I travel away from Seattle.
Fortunately, I have a sure fire way to beat the blues that cloudy weather tends to bring. It’s called food. My go-to is typically coffee and pastries, but I’ve been told you can’t live on carbs alone (although I’m willing to try).
This stew isn’t quite like eating sunshine, that’s what lemon poppyseed muffins are for. This stew is more like being wrapped up in a soft blanket next to a warm fire.
A warm fire that happens to be waiting for you when you get home from work. Don’t you love slow cooker recipes?!
