sunday sparkle

 Snowflakes have a way of inspiring sparkle.  I found this sweet snowflake added to a place card.
While skiing, I stopped to admire all the snow laden branches.  They look like lace.
This has been the scene for a few days in a row, lots of sparkly snow coming down.
Perfect for skiing and for preparing hearty cozy stews.
I have this hearty stew simmering on the stove to bring to the ski mountain for our Sunday lunch. All you need are onions, garlic, parsnips, chopped veggies, potatoes, water and I used some leftover roast beef.  Season, simmer, and then serve with some crusty bread.
Skiing certainly creates an appetite for warmth.

Hope everyone is enjoying a sparkly Sunday today.

We have had very little snow in Chicago, but I am still enjoying making a stew today.
