"What's for Dinner Honey?"

Waking up to snow on March 23rd? That's what we get here in New England- no reason to grouse.  Instead celebrate being able to cozy up to stew one more month day. This landed in our inbox this morning, lucky us Pete Dickason is planning dinner already.  He says

"This may explain how she got all those husbands*."
