Morning everyone,

Wow! It's snowing like crazy, hard too...small blizzard. Rolling Eyes Can hardly see the houses across the street. Blah. Was hoping we were done with this kind of weather, guess not.

Headed out in a little bit to get my taxes done then go to the grocery store to get a few things for lunch.

Hope everyone is doing well and in the snowy areas keeping warm & safe.

Take care,

Good morning Ann. We had some snow squalls in our area yesterday with more snow coming soon. Blech! The sun is shining now which if you didn't know better seems nice, but we have really low temperatures for quite awhile. I am going to make a big pot of chili for dinner today. I always make it with stewing cubes but am going to make it today with ground beef.
I have an appointment very early tomorrow at the pain clinic. People who abuse drugs make it difficult for those of us who really need pain killers. It make it a lot more expensive also since I will have to pay a specialist fee to go there.
My sister in law called last evening to tell us that she got Gary and I each a box of girl scout cookies. She said the price went up and the amount of cookies went down. I told her I would bring her coffee that Darryl brought back from Guatemala.
I was "talking" with a blogger about searching for a good mocajete and she said I should ask someone living near Mexico to get me one, then the light bulb went off, I should have asked Darryl to get me one when he was in Guatemala, they are very near volcanoes and they say the best ones are made from lava. If I haven't found one I like by next year I hope I remember to ask him to get me one. They showed a really nice one on "The Chew" yesterday and said it was only $25.00, I will have to check that out.
**Ann, I hope the weather is nice enough for you to get out and about today. Hubby noticed this morning that our income tax refund had been deposited in our account, that was a nice surprise. How is Leo doing? Still licking?
**Fan, those crocus' were beautiful. I wish I still had some in my flower beds. The daffodils are up and growing though. Still have a lot of snow that needs to melt away. It will be nice to see grass once again. What will you be making for dinner today?
**Qui, I see you posted on Vicki's birthday post, you are you doing?
I wonder how Tango is doing since her surgery? I hope she is able to let us know soon.
Good morning to anyone else who stops in, have a great day!

Hey folks.

Stopped by to check in and check out a recipe or 2.
We have our wintry weather today and tomorrow - currently it's 48, on the way to 65 with overnight low of 35 and hi of 70 tomorrow, and that may well be the end of winter for us.

Irish Potato candies...have no potato in them. They are, however, fun to make and quite tasty if you like coconut. When finished, they look like tiny potatoes.

Room mate = still no problems, however, it is a test at times because we had both gotten used to living alone. So far we both are adapting nicely.
Marsha works, so is gone all day, which gives me my 'alone time'

And for your chuckle of the day...remember I told you about making pea soup for dinner at the Legion? Well, everyone knows it's best the next day, so last night I set dried peas to soak, anticipating the brewing of a mouthwatering soup by end of day that would transform into liquid green magic for Friday. This AM, Marsha was making her fake coffee (1/2 caf ?) and said I thought you were making pea soup for the Auxiliary dinner. I said - I am...why? She said......are you ready?...... It's next Friday.
The monthly dinner is always the 1st Friday of the month and evidently I have lost the ability to keep track of dates, despite TV, Radio, Computer, Room mate, and lots of other logical reminders of dates and things to do.

I managed to wad up my brain and send it off to somewhere else. I just hope I had sense enough to include a return address.
... Pat ...

Whatever you are...Be a good one.

Hi everybody, have a great day Very Happy

Qui, indeed that is the chuckle of the day Laughing Are you going to make it anyway today and put it in the freezer? Could come out very convenient on a chilly and rainy day. But thanks a lot, cause it alerted me to make the marinade for Danielle's Teriyaki Chicken and put the chicken in it in time.
PattiT, I just looked up the molcajetes. They sure look nice. Our daffodils are coming up too, but are not open yet. Might take walk through the park on my way home tomorrow and have another check. Dinner tonight is pasta with tuna and black olives in tomato sauce.

Ann-Marie, more snow? Looks like your area is going to skip Spring this year. Stay warm and good luck on the taxes.
I overslept this morning and was rather late for office due to a power outage of probably one or to seconds. It messed up my alarm clock and if it hadn't been for Myo waking me up I might not have made it at all. Laughing.
But it's a funny feeling, like you are walking behind your self to catch up. I was kind of slow with everything today. Hopefully nobody noticed Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

It's on the stove, with the timer set for every 30 minutes so I don't forget to stir it. Just kind of a slow simmer, bubbles waltzing across the top of the brew. Right now, it smells better than it tastes...still has that raw pea grain going on...another few hours will cure that, I'm sure....and I'm thinking of finishing it with bacon grease instead of butter...maybe...

I'll let you know how it turns out.

Whatever you are...Be a good one.
