In February I had the chance to visit Paris for 8 days. It was nice to finally escape our cold days. The weather in Paris was between 3C and 10C. It was the perfect weather to visit the city on foot. We did walk a lot all around town. We rented an apartment, by Trocadéro, and at night I cooked delicious meals. We needed this time to relax and unwind before going to bed.
When it is that cold outside I like to spend more time in the kitchen. For our daily meals I cook warm winter meals like soups, stews, pastas. We satisfy our appetite with comfort dishes and it is a bonus when I make a recipe that I can freeze, like these Sloppy Joes. You can make this recipe ahead, freeze it, and when you come home you can prepare your meal in few minutes.
