It’s Thursday the weatherman here is predicting three days of snow. Calling for one to two feet of snow here today with high winds . But really I can’t feel too bad about it considering the folks that are having to deal with the Noreaster with rain, snow, and also high winds. My heart breaks for the people still without power knowing that people are cold and having such a tough time. It seems like it’s been a really long couple of weeks with storms, elections, relentless political ads, and then spring forward no fall back. I think Arizona and Hawaii have it right, skip over day light saving time.
Tomorrow is Friday that’s a good thing I hope you have something pleasant to look forward to this weekend. I did some cooking this last week I made a crock pot lasagna from Frank Angle‘s recipe. The crock pot is a great way to cook lasagna it keeps the noodles very moist. I also cooked crock pot applesauce with cranberries the house smelled great with lots of autumn like smells. This recipe is from Joy and Nikki instead of using 12 apples I used 6 large ones and that seems like a good amount. And last but not least I made a pumpkin and bacon soup from Char this was so tasty and amazing I found myself scraping the bowl with my spoon at the end of this soup. Cooking this soup also made the house smell great. In the near future I’m hoping to make Gina’s chili and S Le’s meat pie these recipes also sounds really good for a cold weather day. Have you been cooking Fall foods? Have you found a new recipe that you love or maybe an old tried and true? If so feel free to add the recipe to the comment area or a link. I’m enjoying doing a little cold weather cooking. These are mostly non vegetarian meals. I will print links some time to some vegetarian meals as well. Or maybe just tell me what kind of foods you like to eat when the weather turns cold maybe home-made bread, soups, crock pot meals, or maybe cup cakes? I just threw that last one in to see if you were still reading. :+) Let me know how your week is going. Would you be interested in a few vegetarian recipes as well or just comfort food recipe only please. Thinking back over my life when things have been difficult and I don’t know what to say or what to do like the storms on the east coast or when friends or family are not doing well sometimes I cook. I remember when my best friends father was diagnosed with cancer I showed up with a potato dumping soup and cranberry bread and a large silk flower. I really didn’t know what to say or what to do I just felt so frustrated so I just I cooked instead. I felt so helpless. Not to end on a sad note I was just thinking about comfort foods in general. What kinds of foods do you think of when you think of comfort foods?
