Personal Notes:
It's a lot of ingredients and a lot of time (set aside a complete morning or afternoon), but it is worth it. Have a great dinner, and then freeze the rest in containers large enough to serve two. On chilly nights when you have had a hard day, simply put the container in the microwave on the thaw setting for 20 minutes while you have a glass of wine. Transfer it to a pot and continue thawing and warming for about 10 minutes. Serve with crusty bread in front of a roaring fire, and you'll be in heaven.
