Thanks VB and I agree with all of you. Fla is best in the winter. Dec-Mar. I just can't stand snow. When we were in Tx last year they had an ice storm. I was miserable. 75 maybe 80 for a high and nothing lower than 40 and I would be in heaven. Or in Europe.

Tonight I am eating (just made it)... a ginger-lime steak stir fry.. on a bed of orzo. fresh ingredients - fresh lime juice, fresh diced ginger, a dash of soy sauce, red pepper flakes.. cooked the steak (thinly sliced) with onions and green peppers. It is SO good! It only took 15 min!!

I just simmer some beans (white) for a bit, then strain, add fresh water. In another pot I threw some leftover ham from the freezer and celery, onion, carrot, a bit of clove. Didn't have a bay leaf, otherwise would have added that, too. I didn't chop up the veggies real fine. After a bit, I strained the liquid into the bean pot, picked out the ham chunks, trimmed them some, diced carrots, onion, celery into nice pieces, cooked until all was done. Sometimes I throw in some chicken broth or some other stock. That's about it. I don't always simmer the beans with the ham right away because of the salt content in the ham. I let them soften first, then combine the two.
Glad you think the snow is pretty! It's not unusual to get snow this time of year, but what is unusual is the low temperatures. It is to get down to 8 degrees F tonight. At least we will probably have a nice base on the mountain for skiing. We have fabulous nordic trails (and a small alpine resort, too, but i don't do that). It is supposed to warm up to the 50's next week. Maybe we'll be able to rake, when the leaves drop.
