We've had 3-5ÂșC all during the week.i know you snow birds are cracking up as you read, but we're not used to this cold weather.What we have here is balmy Mediterranean weather.

My pot au- feu has been steaming with one of those hearty, thick Spanish soups with loads of chorizo , dried sausages, chick peas and ham bones for taste.
You start out with a sofrito ,then add the bones and water and simmer.There you have the secret. Add the rest of the ingredients and let it follow its course.
Wonderful comfort food and a way to keep the heater down to a reasonable level. And you don't have to cook just keep adding things to the ham bone stock.
Have a warm and cozy weekend.

    mmm - looks like a good idea. here we have "warmed up" to 2.5C ! Your climate sounds much better. ;) Evelyn

  5. Sounds like a wonderful way to keep warm. Mmmmm!

  6. I am sure that anything cooked in that gorgeous pot would be delicious, by the way -3C this morning!

  7. Sofrito (made with tomato, onion and olive oil) makes me think of the traditional Italian Sugo pasta sauce which is a cooked blend of tomato, onion and olive oil with garlic, basil, oregano and red pepper.

    Your meal sound delicious; keep warm.
