bay leaves

We had a lovely Christmas with family. And back to the farm for a day of snow, sleet, rain and general winter weather mayhem. The wintery mix has continued all day and shows no sign of stopping. Reports of slippery roads and cars sliding into spots they should not be abound.

A slow, all day dinner was prepared. A pack of our beef cubes, along with garlic, onions and spices went into a Dutch oven on top of the stove. Browned a little, then a full jar of tomatoes we canned this summer on top.

A few hours pass, and the bay leaf from the branch brought to us by a friend, from her tree, was added. Hot peppers from our garden. A little rice.

A tray of deviled eggs on the side. Yum.
Life is good.
