January is almost behind us but we have had plenty of distractions to keep our mind off the short days and long winter nights. Not only did Downton Abbey won Best Drama at Britain’s National Television Awards last week, they picked up the Drama Ensemble Award at last night’s SAG awards. Joanne Froggatt was so kind to specifically thank us viewers for our support. You can view the “ensemble” acceptance speech below in the Downton Dish section.
And if that wasn’t exciting enough, Scots around the world celebrated poet Rabbie Burns this weekend (more below).
In tribute to the Russian refugees who Rose adopted and whom Violet has a connection with, this week’s dish is Beef Beet Borscht, a traditional Russian dish. It is hearty healthy and inexpensive soup, perfect to feed your own army during the cold winter months.
