Here in Norway it`s still "summer" (I say "summer" because we have very, very few days where the temperature is actually hot enough to really call it summer), but I know that autumn will be here a lot faster than I would like. Soo, I am starting to plan my autumn/wintermeny this year. I LOVE stews, thick soups, casseroles and one pot meals. (Maybe braisings isn`t the right word? Hopefully my post is understandable anyway...) But, here in Norway we don`t have crockpots, slowcookers etc. I never knew what they were, until coming to Mothering 100 years ago. Soooo, what I would LOVE is to get a bunch of recipes for hearty, winter`ish stews, one pot meals etc that are made in the oven, on the stove, in a casserole etc. I will be forever grateful!
