Skillet Beef Stroganoff


Change is in the air. Spring is right around the corner and with the forecast showing my days in the 60s – in February – Mother Nature and I may be in serious need of a heart to heart.

I am all about warm weather. I love gardening, mountain biking, and a great breeze through the house. But this season she has taken things too far.

I bough those clunky boots everyone wears. Not Uggs, but cheap look alikes. I swore I never would, but damnit they are comfy as sin and you know what? I have had less than 5 occasions to wear them this winter. I have far too many pairs of knee high socks or random fun patterns and colors that make me smile that are collecting dust in my drawer. And for someone who is not a fan of winter weather, I wholly embrace the need to be cozy in my collection of cable sweaters. But no. Mother Nature is giving us a dose of global warming or a La Niña winter or something and she and I are going to come to blows. No need for my adorable flannel sheets, no use for those ski pants I bought, and a terrible urge to be outside grilling every night, not in slaving over hearty stews and slow cooker meals.

Sure, we’ve had some snaps, this is a woman we are dealing with after all. But nothing of blizzard proportions. I can not be the only adult in desperate need of a few snow days, right?

    I hear you. I still have cute winter clothes that I got for Christmas that I haven’t had a chance to wear yet!

    This stroganoff looks excellent! I usually do mine in the crockpot, but this would be much faster!

    Stroganoff, Beef, BRANDY. Kita, this is so warming. I also got these look-a-likes for my daughter and believe me, she has needed to wear them all winter. She never has them off! Pass some of that breezy warm air over the ocean, please. Meanwhile we’re taking your comforting stroganoff and hopefully we can say off with ze boots soon.
