Why I Love This Recipe

I made this to test out my new Le Crueset Dutch oven this summer. (it's worth every penny) It would be even better now that its getting chilly out. I like anything with wine in it...most of the wine ends up in me and not in the dish. Published in the Ft. Worth Star Telegram.

3 fresh thyme sprigs
5 flat leaf parsley sprigs
1 bay leaf
3 slices bacon, cut into pieces
