Icy Cold Weather and Warm and Cozy Comfort Food!

 

 

Yes my dear readers, I have heard you.  It is icy cold in many places and there is nothing like warm and cozy comfort food to take the chill off the house and the bones.

This weather has been so unpredictable lately and twin #1 told me of the run on Wal-Mart and other Grocery stores as people flocked to get stocked up for the icy cold weather that was predicted for the Midwest.

Mexican Food? Spicy Potato Soup? You Betcha!

I love Mexican food.

I know, I know…so do most of you.

Before I moved to New Mexico, I thought I really knew Mexican food but as I have explained before…there is nothing like the real deal.

Don’t get me wrong….I still like Tex-Mex Mexican food, but when I get a “hankerin'” for that indescribable taste of real Mexican food, I dive into my recipes from my years of living in New Mexico.

Keep, Recycle And Toss!

Keep, Recycle And Toss!

If you are like me…you might have been a bit slow in getting all the Christmas Decorations put away.

Part of my issue was just plain procrastination and the other part of me was knowing that it was time to sort through all the extra boxes of decor that the Captain brought into the house on New Year’s Day, along with the put-away-decor boxes.

Swimmin’ Upstream, Maple Syrup and Loozeeanna!

You might ask what these three things have in common.

Dear readers…I am sure that you are aware that salmon swim upstream and when we think of salmon we think of the speckled salmon mostly in the Pacific Northwest. However, the Atlantic region also has salmon…..

And The Fashion Winner Is….

And the Fashion Winner is….

First a confession.

I am really not into all the awards shows that literally dominate the television screen this time of year.

You know, like The Golden Globes, The Grammys, The Emmys and The Oscars! 

Don’t get me wrong, the Captain and I do like movies and we go to see a lot of them during the year.

However, the movie critics and I just don’t seem to agree on what is a good movie and what is not.

And that is ok.

But I do have a confession to make!

Inquiring Minds Apparently Want To Know! So, Just so you know….

Last week, I met a VERY NICE  person and she asked me a question that no one had asked me before.

My Sports Teams Are Doing Really Well This Year…

My Sports Teams are doing really well this year….

I have been trying very hard not to bore you non-sports readers.

I really have.

But it is difficult especially when my sports teams are doing so well.

I am not going to brag.

I will try to stay humble.

Wait! If you say you are humble, doesn’t that negate any humbleness? 

If so…just ignore that last comment.
