It was 3 degrees when DH got up this morning. It's up to about 9 now. We've got beef in the crock pot right now for vegetable/beef soup or beef'n noodles, or both. DH is always afraid we won't have enough meat, so he thawed two chuck roasts for just the two of us.

We get by with a little help from our friends

Guess what - it is cold here too - brrr. I am boiling up a chicken and making chicken and noodles later. Maybe a blackberry cobbler too.

Cold, cold, cold here. Single digits without wind chill.

Had a nice meal planned for tonight, but it looks like I'm going to have to reconsider. I turned my oven on to bake biscuits for breakfast...nothing. No oven. GRRRRR! Boo hiss! I was going to bake bread today, too.

I'll post later when I've figured out what I'm going to do.

I have a nice Black Angus Sirloin Tip Roast that is going in the slow cooker with some carrots, celery, onion, and red potatoes. But, before it hits the slow cooker I am slicing off about 1/3 of it to make Beef Stroganoff for lunch.
For desert, since we are both on diets (and much to the chagrin of the children) we are having peach slices with cottage cheese. Simple but tasty.

Tonight I'm making a major comfort food for me - Betty Crocker's chicken a la king over mashed potatoes.

I have no idea what I'm having for dinner yet I didn't even have much of a brunch like I usually do.
On a day like today I just might heat up one of the shepherd's pies up I dished out last night, even though that's what I had last night for dinner. I might make some chicken wings, too..... I just found a package in the freezer and it looks like they need used up fast. Just a touch of freezer burn on some of them . As some know, I've been working on baking a loaf of bread since 6 this morning and it's finally done. Stupid machine. I just might sit in front of the TV with my loaf, a knife and some butter

The first game is starting soon, so I'll figure it out later

But I just have to say (since we're talking about it) what weird weather... it's been snowing all day, can't see 500 ft anywhere, and there isn't any more snow on the ground now than there was this morning. Sure the flakes are small cuz it's so cold.... but this is weird.
And appreciated
