Every year around this time, we ALWAYS end up with some seasonal beer in our fridge, usually a porter or stout that just gets pushed further to the back of the fridge as each day gets a little warmer. Making a luscious beef stew is my go to way to use it up while also winning MAJOR husband points! Melt in your mouth beef with tender potatoes + carrots simmered in a silky savory thyme + cumin infused broth. Its so warming + satisfying. You're gonna love it!
Whether I'm working through lunch, binging netflix on a snow day or floating (freezing my ass off) down a river with my fishing guide husband, I love a sippable soup. Something warm and cozy to keep your hands toasty and no trying to be polite with a spoon. Infused with fresh thyme and vermouth, this french onion soup is so rich and decadent while staying light and refreshing. And the gruyere dippers are just TOO GOOD! You have to try them!
