Well, it wasn’t exactly the blizzard they predicted, but I guess we got somewhere between 8 – 10″. It just gently drifted to the ground over the last 24 hours, making for beautiful views from our windows and a nice, cozy feeling inside.
I know some of you may not agree with me, but, I think this time of year is just wonderful! I’m perfectly fine with staying indoors – I can always find something to do. I made a loaf of cranberry walnut bread this morning, but this time I tried it with gluten free flour and agave nectar instead of sugar. It didn’t rise as much as usual but I thought it was delicious (and healthy!)
I was going through one of Ina’s cookbooks today and found several recipes I’d like to try. I love all of her dishes – she keeps things rather simple and that’s definitely how I like to do things. Her roasted asparagus and prosciutto with a bit of hollandaise was calling my name. I have to admit, her slow roasted filet of beef with basil parmesan mayonnaise had my mouth watering too.
As wonderful as all these recipes looked, I had taken turkey scallopine out of the freezer, so that was our dinner tonight. I cooked them in a butter and ginger sauce and they were delicious. I made baked sweet potatoes and steamed brussel sprouts and the whole meal only took about 15 minutes to make. I told you I like simple.
Earlier in the day, I was reading a little of Esther Hicks’ “Getting Into The Vortex.” One of the passages says, “Your body responds primarily to the contents of your thoughts. Your life is supposed to feel good to you and you are meant to feel happiness in your life – and you are meant to satisfy your dreams.” I hope all of you are experiencing happiness in your life today.
Have a wonderful day!
