Emme came screaming through the house tonight announcing that she heard on the radio we were suppose to have snow here in Equator, Florida.
From the sound of her voice, I thought the house was ablaze. Which would be unusual since it could easily be snowing indoors. The intrepid Florida contractors and home builders do not take into account those rare winters when temperatures fall below 40 degrees.
But I am not complaining. I love the colder weather. Makes me feel like we’re actually experiencing a season other than AFRICA HOT.
And I also have a chance to wear my groovy fur boots out in public. The same boots that I’ve had to HIDE from my daughters. They did not inherit my petite feet, and at the ages of 8 and 10 have begun foraging through MY closet in search of cool shoes.
Good luck with that.
One thing that I dearly love about cold weather is comfort food. No salads for me these last weeks. Nay. I’m craving hearty food that warms my innards and make me want to wear my stretchypants.
My mother used to cook dishes like chicken and dumplings. A meal that warmed the house up with aromatic flavors, and put meat on your bones. Goodbye metabolism.
Sadly, I have forgotten all of my cold weather cooking roots. Just yesterday, I stood outside shivering while attempting to grill chicken on my mini-Weber grill.
So I was wondering if you all have any good and easy cold weather recipes you could share?
