The other day I was talking to someone who was making a pot of chili. I rarely am in the mood to cook, but her chili sure sounded good, and I had not had any for a long time.
So, I got out a pot and the ingredients and started making chili. Every time I cook chili, soup, or stew I always end up with more than I wanted. It was no different this time, I even had to pour it into a larger pot before I could get all the ingredients in.
Since there was more chili than I had planned I froze some. After thinking about it I decided some chili-mac would be good. I needed some mac-and-cheese to have that and again there was more than I needed. Now my freezer has chili, mac-and-cheese, and chili-mac in it. I won’t be wanting chili for another long time.
Everything outside is covered in ice and we are still getting freezing mist, drizzle or rain off and on. After today I will get off the comfort food and back to a healthier diet. For me, this kind of weather screams for a little comfort food, just not more than I need for now.
I’m hoping it gets warm enough soon and we see sunshine melting the ice. We have not had this much ice in my area for quite some time. Praying for all those who have no electricity, have a warm place to stay.
It is sad to see all the trees that are damaged from the ice, but it is amazing to see how most of them recover. They may not look like they did before the ice, but they keep on living and doing what they are supposed to do.
