finally, a SNOW DAY!!
I am so stoked, it is March 1st and I am finally getting to experience my first "snow day," aka no school here in southern Minnesota.
I moved here from Texas in June and I have truly been amazed at the weather. There have been a number of very cold, snowy days (-24?!!!!) where the stoic Minnesotans march onward like nothing is different and they really wouldn't rather stay in their warm little houses.
But today there is no school. I went to the grocery store last night in anticipation and today I'm gonna cook like there's no tomorrow. Because, well, when I look out my window, it looks like there might not be!
Anyone have any killer "winter" recipes I should try? I have a well stocked pantry and I eat just about anything vegan.
congrats on your snow day! now that i teach i actually dislike them (well, only if they land on a day i have class) because they mess my lecture schedule up.
killer winter things....how about a big crockpot of seitain stew? ohhhh baby! that will stick to the ribs. cinnamon rolls...things that take time like bread so you can let the dough rise as you work on other things. i'm jelous now that i think about it....
Soup or chilli...Me I love winter soups, see the fact that I have contributed several. Put a big pot on, and then while it cooks, make cookies...bread...pies...anything baked you usually don't have time for. How about a big old batch of cinnamon rolls??
Can you imagine how good your kitchen is gonna smell!
Pineapple princess, I hope your snow day was all you'd hoped for. We've been having monsoons where I am--downpours, hail, thunder, lightning. But...I have baked alllllllll day. I've been thinking about you. I must say, though, that you were much more prolific than I was. :D
wow! i'm coming to your house for dinner ;)
after i got home from work i was dreaming of stew but only managed some pasta and veggies. not fancy but it got the job done. but i know i'm making some cinna rolls this weekend :D
3. white bean/orange chili.
You must explain.
Please do that sounds so yummy. I have been making a lot of bean soups w/ the crappy weather we've been having here and I'm sure my BF would like to try something new. It also sounds like it could be a bit more upscale for a dinner party.
Have they plowed you out yet?
