What’s Cookin’ Wednesday September 10, 2008

Since we’ve been out of town for a week and I make a point of grocery shopping on Thursdays to get 10.00 off at a local grocery chain, the cupboards are bare.  Using what’s left in the pantry, I am going to throw together some grilled cheese and tomato soup tonight.

Today is actually the perfect day for such a meal as it is cloudy and chilly and feels like Autumn is on its way!  Ara and I ate warm maple oatmeal on the back porch this morning bundled up in jackets and a blanket.

Such weather begs the question, “What is your favorite Autumn meal?”


Snow Day! February 22, 2008

I feel like I need to bump my previous post about how Spring is almost here to remind myself. It really is just around the corner! Today; however, it is white for as far as you can see. Schools are closed which means the tea room that I work at on Fridays is closed as well and I feel like a kid with a snow day!

This morning Aralyn and I spent some time at our window seat watching the birds puffing themselves up to keep warm. The cardinals are so beautiful against the background of snowy white. Our yard is the place to be if you are a bird in our neighborhood because we have one of the only evergreen trees to keep warm in.

With the weather the way it is to day, I am dreaming of a fireplace. Maybe I need to get one of those videos that you pop in your DVD player and it turns your tv into a fireplace!

If I could give you one thing today, it would be a big, steaming bowl of tomato soup. So, enjoy! Happy snow day!
