Sorry to hear that. Thank heavens we have a mom-and-pop butcher shop here that has awesome short ribs (really meaty and trimmed nicely) for less than that. I'd send you some if I could. Still...you might HAVE to make an exception.

We missed you too! Speaking of comfort food, I would love to spend another evening with you guys eating one of those sandwiches at Primanti Bros. Yum! Of course, the company was even better.

Cassaroles. I found a new desire for casseroles this last year and they are so warming on a freezing cold day.

All the choices are so tempting, but I especially like hearty soups and stews. And, as kadesma said, I can't think of a big steamy bowl of soup without some crusty homemade bread. Man, oh man, I'm craving soup all of a sudden.

One of my choices during the fall and winter is a dish of braised short ribs that practically makes me want to crawl into the casserole as they cook. Yummy.

I use bourbon to make my ribs.

I picked soups, but I could have also gone with a couple of others.
