Speaking of tasting good, here's a simple recipe for chicken stew I've been making every week since October. Toss a package of bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs (about 6 large) into a 9 x 13 baking dish. Add whatever veggies you have on hand, chopped large. (I usually use cabbage, carrots, leeks, several cloves of garlic), a few cups of white wine, sage, thyme, (fresh herbs are always better) salt, and freshly ground pepper. Bake low, about 275 for several hours, until cooked down, tender and golden. You're gonna love this, regardless of the elements.
"Well," said Pooh, "what I like best,"
and then he had to stop and think.
Because although eating honey was a very good thing to do,
there was a moment just before you began to eat it
which was better than when you were,
but he didn't know what it was called.”
― A. A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
