How heavenly a White Square Day can be! It was way below freeeezing outside today and I had fully anticipated staying in all day. I only stepped out to run to the grocery store and dashed home very quickly. It was a day set aside for laundry and e-mail and addressing Christmas cards. I never did get 'round to the latter. I began at 3:00 p.m. as planned to try out that new recipe for beef stew with mushrooms and it was fabulous. I'd never cooked with shallots before. Shared some with a neighbor. She loved it!
