    That looks super yummy and would be great for the cold weather we’ve been having the past few days.
    And Josie – bless you for taking a picture of what the stove looks like when a normal person cooks. Sometimes I can’t help but laugh at blogs where the pictures are all perfect and spotless. (although my stove would have many more spills than that!)
