Snowing Day

A freezing, snowy day birthed a premature winter. As often is the case in Oklahoma, we have an extended summer, a very short fall, and a sudden winter. When was the last time that we were snowed in for two days in a row?

A day of cold confinement always inspires me to cook. My always-be-prepared-for-the-worst husband exhorted me to fill up with gas and groceries before the ice and snow hit. I followed his advice with diligence. Smells of chili and homemade bread filled the air inside as snowed swirled in the air outside. Nothing brings comfort more than a wood-burning fire, a hot cup of coffee, and some homemade goodies.

What do I cook tomorrow?
