    it is cold here today....freezing or below the whole day...we have had breakfast...and are now getting ready for dinner...with guests (the kids hardly that important) so we are making turkey breast in a clay cooker, mashed taters, undecided green, already made the cranberry sauce and the cream cheese is coming to room temperature. (little hint here..cream cheese does not melt when cooked..if your batter has lumps your cheesecake will have lumps...you must bring it to room temp and use a "moist" oven. put a pan of hot water under the cheesecake)

    no one cares about those making shrimp on the grill....yall are hardly favored people in the winter to those of us in the cold.

    I have not cooked in the kitchen inside all summer...hate to use the oven or stove for any length of time during the summer....pretty good at getting everything for dinner, done outside on the grill...

    but a cold spell came in the other day and looks like winter is early and here to stay....it snowed in the rain mix tonight...pretty darn early, even for coastal maine...

    I made a big pot of beef stew....and loaf of homemade bread....been a year since we had it, but it was nice standing infrnt of the warm stove...

    Today I had a fire going in the fireplace....still no wood stove yet...would love to learn to cook on top of the wood stove...

    I never eat them anymore, just had a craving after being up all night. Trust me I have found out that baked toastio chips with fake sour creme, with salsa is good. I have switched to vodka waters, and I forgot what bread taste like. :)

    I already made my first batch of chili. I love that when it gets cold with just a little sprinkle of cheese on top.
