Cold Days and Comfort Food

January 9th, 2010

Marcel just came in with JJ and he says it’s snowing yet again. We’re expecting high winds and snow tonight, and with the combinatioin of the cold and the wind, all I can say is that I’m glad I don’t have to get outside again.

I came home earlier from Bobbi’s and visiting her, Pieter, Luca and meeting her dad for the first time. We had dinner and I put my PJ’s on. The rest of the evening is relax time.

Now if I can just get this cough to stop that started up again a few minutes ago. After almost a month, it’s driving me BONKERS!

    Hi Lori :) I hope you get over that cough. Take a teaspoon of honey every few hours. It will help stop any throat irratation that may have begun.

    Keep warm!

    I made some “comfort food” for supper tonight. :)

    I had very lean ground beef crumbles left so I put them on the bottom of a glass baking dish,

    then made a layer of green beans, and another layer of sliced carrots….

    and then I scooped out the baked potatoes and spread the potato on top of the layers.

    Over top of it all, I poured a can of Campbell’s Chicken Broth, low sodium.

    Oh, and I added pats of Smart Balance Light over the layers of carrots and green beans.

    I baked it at 350* for 35 minutes. I made cherry jello for dessert. :)

    so you’re also suffering from “Daisy”? ;-)

    We had more snow over night … I love it! I bought a week-pass for taking the trains to work so I can leave my car in the garage. It’s nice having the train station only 500 m away.

    Your dinner sounds delicious Sunny! YUM!! Looks like we both had comfort food for dinner. :) *hugs*

    Are the trains running on regular schedule there Dorrie? The train is only a 10 minute walk from our house, but many of the trains have been cancelled on the days that the weather gets really bad. Either that or they’re running late. The snow is definitely beautiful.

    What is daisy/?

    “Daisy” is the name of the low pressure system that’s causing this “mess”. :-)

    So far the trains here have been quite on time… amazingly so! Very few cancelations. Frankfurt had over 200 flights canceled yesterday and delays today.

    Glad you like my recipe, Lori !

    Ohhh and I saw on TV where a train actually had to be dug out of a long huge snow bank!

    The train was snowed in! Workers were hand-shoveling the train out! It took 30 hours.
