The cold weather months are not my favorite. On weekdays I’m out the door before the sun rises and then I’m rushing from the car to daycare to car to work work work, back to daycare and finally home (obviously after the sun sets because it sets so darn early.) But winter weekends…I can get on board with those. Though I do miss the warm weather activities of spring and summer, there is much to be said for being staying inside cozy and comfortable. And there is even more to be said for taking full advantage of this season, cooking something slowly and with care, filling the house with incredible smells and bellies with warmth.
This meal…oh, my friends, this meal. Short ribs, Cabernet, pasta, fresh greens – what more do you need to know? The short ribs are definitely the star of this dish but the whole combination just works so very well together. Though I love every recipe I share in this space, I reserve gushing for the best of the best. This meal is completely gush-worthy. It’s one of those where each and every bite elicits an, “Mmmmm…”, “Wow…”, “So good…”, etc. Truly comfort food at its finest.
