I have a group of friends who get together about every 6 weeks for a dinner to see each other and to catch up on each other’s lives. It is my turn to host on Saturday and I am trying to menu plan. My thoughts are perhaps a beef stew, soda bread, and roast veggies or a salad. I might make a fruit crisp for dessert. Also, mulled wine.

Thoughts on this menu? Or suggestions of what you would want to cook/eat for a cozy get together with friends on a cold day?
