Is it snowing where you are?! My word it is rather white outside Mustard Spoon World HQ (aka our tiny Cotswold cottage)...loving the wintery feel of today and I think that a steak & ale stew could be just what's needed to warm things up! I go for @bathales 'Gem' which is insanely good then I like to serve mine with all the trimmings including some über MASSIVE Yorkshire puddings deeeeelish! Hope everyone's having a fab weekend  . . . #foodblog #foodblogger #christmas #xmas #foodie #instafood…
