Greetings to all folks near and far.
With colder nights coming up, you will want some good, hot meals that will warm your family and yourself and keep the chill off. I have an awesome recipe to add to your winter supper menus.
Ragout is the term used for a stew that may or may not contain meat. As with all stews, the best cook will cook it slow over low heat. Ingredients for a ragout vary widely with individual choices of meat, vegetables, spices, and seasonings. Ragout comes from the French word 'ragouter' (rag - ooter), which means "to revive the taste".
Beef Ragout From Your Crockpot is an easy and delicious meal. Click on the following link for the recipe:

Did you know that a bear can lose fifteen to forty percent of its body weight during the winter just by sleeping! Once it enters into hibernation, the bearís body goes through several changes. Its heartbeat drops from fifty-five beats per minute to ten beats per minute. Its body temperature will drop up to nine degrees below its normal temperature. All that body fat the bear gains by eating so much during the late summer and autumn months is all stored energy. This is what helps the bear to survive its long winter sleep.
"It pleased me beyond measure when Yale made me a Master of Arts, because I didn't know anything about art...I rejoiced again when Missouri University made me a Doctor of Laws, because it was all clear profit, I not knowing anything about laws except how to evade them...And now at Oxford I am to be made a Doctor of Letters--all clear profit, because what I don't know about letters would make me a multi-millionaire if I could turn it into cash."

Till next time, may your home be filled with laughter and may it ring from floor to rafter.
May you walk in Beauty and Harmony.
