We had one day recently where it warmed up to nearly 70 degrees! It was amazing and it had me so excited for spring. The next day it went back down to the low 40’s and has stayed there since with a few days even hitting the 30’s for a high. It’s been freezing! The good news is this has inspired me to make a few more comfort food recipes.
I thought it would be fun to play around with the classic Beef Stroganoff recipe and make it with rice and challenge myself to make it as simply as possible. It turned out delicious and it’s a great meal for a busy weeknight. It was hearty and filling and I look forward to making it again.
I’m hoping the weather will warm up but until then, I’ll keep making and enjoying more wintery comfort dishes.
