It's colder than you know what here today, so it will be hamburger macaroni soup tonight. It is comfort food to me, so it I am hoping it will warm me, somewhat!

I need to take another trip south on the City of New Orleans to see UB, LOL.

Tonight is either chicken Catchatori or chicken stir-fry, not sure which yet but leaning toward Catchatori.

I'm going to marinate a pork tenderloin in some greek spices, lemon and olive oil and then do it up in the oven with some potatoes and asparagus. I have a nice red wine that is going to be opened too - shortly.

Stayed up until 2 a.m. talking with my brother. (I stayed overnight at his house last night.) I didn't get home until almost 11 this morning and have done nothing but the dishwasher and 3 loads of laundry. I'm whupped.

However, I have a half a chicken breast and want to do something comforting and warming with it. Not inspired just yet but I think it should definitely involve the oven.

I am going to try a deep dish pizza in my cast iron pan. Any suggestions as far as temp and how long? I have baked a million cookies and even made some chili. Funny what I can do when I am snowed in.

I had planned on making pork chops in gravy but I ate a big 'ol sandwich for lunch and I think I'm too stuffed.
We shall see....

I ended up making a big ol' pot of potato cheese soup (packaged mix from "Bear Creek" - just add water). It was actually really good and I have enough leftover for another meal!

I was too tired to do much so I warmed up a dish (frozen) of barbecued pork ribs and sauce. Nuked a potato. Leftover cookies from gift baskets for dessert.
