Wow, we’re frozen again here in Texas, yall!
Saturday, we were in shorts and flip-flops, and Sunday, we were bundled up indoors watching the sleet and freezing rain hit the windows. WOW!
It still surprises me how quickly Texas weather can change, but I’m telling you, I’m a Texas girl! So I’m not complaining. And you know what the cold weather does to me? Or is it the fact that I’m “stuck” in the house?
Well, either way, I bake and cook. A lot.
Basically, the boys dog-pile their dad in the living room, watch Dude Perfect videos, then attempt to reenact the Dude Perfect shots, which turns into an indoor basketball game in which things may or may not get knocked off the walls, but…hey. They’re having fun.
Sunday, while the boys played with their dad, I made biscuits, cinnamon rolls, applesauce-banana cake (it’s awesome), chili, chicken pot pie, and chicken noodle soup. I know. I told you. Something about a simmering pot on the stove when it’s cold outside just makes me happy.
You would think I might not need to cook much else for the week, but they ate almost all of that. Chili – gone. Soup – gone. We have a few biscuits and cinnamon rolls left. And some cake. These boys can eat some groceries, friends. But as always, I’m thrilled to cook for them. It’s my joy.
So here’s what’s on the menu this week:
- winter granola (because when I make this, it will turn Spring again, right?)
- easy, fluffy biscuits with local honey and organic grape jelly
- blueberry muffins
- green smoothies
- vegetable beef stew, sweet cornbread
- parmesan chicken, easiest spaghetti ever, salad with this dressing
- easiest enchiladas ever, pico de gallo, guacamole, chips
- stuffed bell peppers, chips, salsa
- baked mac and cheese, green beans, salad
- applesauce banana cake
- white chocolate chip cookies
