Is there anything better than the word “fricassee”? Not in my book. This is really, at its core, a soul-warming meal, perfect for cooler weather and longer nights. It’s a meal you want to savor while you spend an extra moment or two gathered around the table with your family. In our hectic lives it’s important to remember to look at the big picture. I’ve been stretched thinner than thin lately. Work is piling up even as I write this with plenty of business travel on the horizon, Max was sick all weekend, Sophie went to bed with a fever, and I have no idea what we’re going to have for dinner for an entire week. That hasn’t happened in over five years. Things around here are more than a bit unpredictable, but that’s beginning to feel like the new normal. I know that’s the reality for so many families. That’s why I feel the need to remind you – take a moment and be thankful for the crazy, frazzled life you’ve created. When you have the opportunity, turn off the television, bring the whole family to the table with a warm and cozy meal like this one, and enjoy the togetherness and conversation. Ask a few leading questions to get everyone talking, and then sit back and really listen to the giggles and laughter. It will quickly remind you why you do all the things you do.
