Dashing thru the snow and homemade chicken soup…

Dashing thru the snow…in a black wheel carried sleigh…all the fun ?  This is something totally unexpected by me.  Snow now?  I got so, I mean, in a state of shock that all I could think was…I don’t know. 

For the first time ever, my nerves got me to cook homemade chicken soup with beans, real beans, I mean, hard beans that had to be cooked for two hours.  I took onion, garlic (you should smell the house) and a big pot, put olive oil, added the stinking onion and garlic, chicken, celery, carrots, beans, a bit of salt, pepper and Mrs. Dash.  No way this house is going to sell tomorrow with all these odors.

After two hours of watching the beautiful snow fall, and taking some pictures for all of  you to appreciate from far away, it was time to taste the famous potion and all the stuff in it.  Well, well, well, not too bad I thought.  So maybe I can cook after all.  All I need is some premature snow fall to motivate me. 

Had dates for dessert (needed something sweet to wash down all the good tasting stuff) and watched the end of the Duke (BB) game.  Life doesn’t feel that bad right now.

The above part was drafted last night, while the excitment was going on.  Now it is sunny, snow melting, and house smells somewhat decent.

Hope you have a good, good day.

Your Happy Contessa

      Lindsay, you know my super redhaired ego would not allow me to have a date. I had around five. I really enjoy dates and figs. Inheritance from my grandparents provenance.
