Normally this is a dish I would have cooked back in January...
Yesterday was cold and windy and it feels like winter doesn't want to release us from it's grasp quite yet. Today, more rain and wind scheduled.
So we're craving cold weather food. Again.
Wasn't I just writing about our beautiful spring last week?

We enjoyed a couple glasses of lovely, white Minervois wine alongside.
The rosé we bought last week in anticipation of warm weather is going to have to wait. Pin It
