The day dawned this morning at a chilly 10° and it took the time it takes to drink a cup of coffee for the car’s windshield to defrost—today’s lunch would have to warm us to the core. So all morning a big pot of beef short ribs with onions and a hand of fresh ginger simmered on the stove. When the broth was full of flavor and the meat was nice and tender, we poached baby bok choy and scallions in the broth. It’s lunch in front of the fire today. We’ve got our warm on now!
