I love the fall and winter months! There’s nothing more soothing and satisfying to me than making a pot of chili or vegetable beef soup or stew, or cooking a nice juicy pot roast in my cast iron dutch oven and having it filled with carrots, potatoes, and onions. The aroma fills my house and my windows sweat just a little bit against the cold outside air. After a hard day’s work, we can enjoy the fruits (or should I say meats) of our labor and we know that what we are eating is clean, and not filled with all of the hormones and other things that go into store-bought meats and veggies. Sure, it may cost a little more than store-bought, but it is definitely worth it.
I love grilling during the colder months as well. I use our Black Stone grill and our smoker all winter long. The smell of our beef cooking or smoking, to me, is heavenly!
