This was the chicken soup I made Yesterday!!

It really hit the spot with the frosty cold weather we had yesterday!

Mine was hit with parmesan cheese snowflakes!

My Andrea just called to tell me about the horrible snow they are having in Indy area. I know it's gonna get to Dane soon if not already there.

I can't tell them that I had to put the top down on my car because 83° is just perfect convertible weather.....

I'm just watching Indy right now, and it's piling on the snow.
3 more inches to go overnight, and it is gonna freeze into crunchie pillows of ice if it is not shoveled or plowed.

I remember when growing up in PA the ruts of ice from the tires would steer the car to where the opposite way that you wanted to go.
We though it was a riot, and poor dad had white knuckles squeezing the steering wheel tight. hahahahahahahaha
I remember leaving the tire chains on for 3 or 4 days because it was so cold.
Salt was no help, so they used cinders ( ashes ) from the coal fired power plants on the roads.

Yeah, Jimmy, salt does nothing until it's in the 30's, I think. Colder than that and it just doesn't melt anything. Andrea said they were under a "stay OFF THE ROAD" directive - they can't get it plowed and they don't want a bunch of idiots who think they need a loaf of bread or gallon of milk....none at the stores by now anyway.

Your soup looks comforting. A few days ago my friend, Barb, said she was down with the cold/flu thing again so I thawed out some stock, added carrots & celery and used my last 2 eggs to make some noodles. She loved it. When it's for a sick one, I don't add any meat - just a few vegetables, well done, and noodles (in this case, homemade ones).

Robin texted me with a pic of the 18" of snow piled on top of the grill sitting on the patio - I guess no burgers for her dad tonight! I couldn't resist and sent her a pic of my meal.....boy, do I feel mean!

Gee Wizzikers!!
Beth Imelda and Barb... That food all looks so good.

Tina made baked ziti with leftover ricotta and mozzarella and sauce with meatballs.
She baked it in a clear glass anchor hocking, and the edges near the glass sides caramelized. Naturally, I ate all around the edges. hahahahaha

Thanks, Jimmy - it was a good meal. And I can just see you with your fork, pickin' your way all around the edges, scraping every crunchy morsel off that casserole dish. I'm sure you just told Tina you wanted to neaten it up for her..... Hahahahahaha!

I've been super hungry for meatloaf ~ so tonight meatloaf was on the menu! I've got about 6 more "personal" size meatloafs in the freezer, will wrap & stash after they are frozen, and also about 4 good sized Salisbury steak patties that I can cook with cream of mushroom soup & red wine and serve with mashed potatoes when Dane gets here. He and the 11 yr. old love that meal.

Cassie made dinner tonight. She stated a chuck roast in the slow cooker an hour and a half ago. I told her to use the pressure cooker or it would be midnight before we ate. With the pressure cooker it was done in 45 minutes. It was good. She also had new potatoes, rolls with a sweet buttery 'icing' and a pull apart cinnamon bread. Everything was delicious.

Barb. Could you have maybe spooned off the gravy, and then add liquid and put it back on?

Aw, come on Barb....you just wanted it nice and thick so it would photograph nicely.

I don't care what you say, I would have eaten it - looks fantastic to me!

Good call on the pressure cooker, Norm ~ and a lesson for Cassie at the same time. It's good to teach 'em to have a Plan B in their back pocket.

think I might make a cake today. comfort food lol

roast chicken might be in the making to.I thought about chicken & dumplings but no..Roast will be better.Better use of leftovers.

Think a pot of beans sounds good too.side of cornbread.

I forgot to mention the salad Cassie made. It was with blue cheese, romaine lettuce, red onion, candied pecans and a poppy seed dressing.
