Beef Bourguignon

It’s a frigid 3 degrees today, with plenty of snow and ice to boot. The kids are running about the house and making as many little messes as possible, naturally. The winter break this year seems a bit longer than others in the past and I can’t put my finger on why. Perhaps it’s that…
