And just think - we live many hours north of Montana. At least you got a good taste of the cold! We used to have to milk cows in pitch blackness before school at -45F. The coldest temperature I have ever been in was -52F with windchill of -65F. And we STILL had to go to work as normal! :(


I was kept home if it was -30 out (school was still on of course, but it was too cold to be out in it and i'd have to walk a short distance to catch the bus). But that only happened a couple of times a winter. Still had to go take care of the horses though. I'd be on the water tank duty, boy that was difficult. One of the horses usually came and stood next to me if it was really windy out (he was such a sweetheart for doing that). The tanks had heaters but still... and then draining the hoses... :blink:

Honestly, I miss it.

:lol: Maybe she will be so busy shoveling she won't notice the kitchen activity. More food for us! We have just enough stairs to keep the boys busy running to and from the downstairs deep freezers, showing off their brawn. May I request one intellectual boy at least for intelligent conversation? :P Wait a minute - where is my husband in all this?? ^_^


If we send him out to shovel snow and the rest of the husbands too, they won't notice us spending all of our time drooling on the cabana boys. It is a brilliant plan!

Far too lazy for cooking tonight, I had a little extra pasta from last night that I heated up and threw together with some Classico and the rest of my fresh cheese from lunch. Finished off the night with three hours on the phone with my best girls and a steaming cup of what for simplicities sake I call hot chocolate. It's more like a drinking chocolate, I don't do that powdered crap any more. There is so much I can't have, what I can I'll have the good stuff thanks. Then, to offend everyone with finer taste buds I topped it with marshmallows instead of whipped cream because there is no such thing as too old for marshmallows. (Hey, at least I didn't use marshmallow snot!)

Fine.... fluff if you want to call it that. The jar does. But for some reason, when I was a small girl, I imagined a giant marshmallow sitting in a factory sneezing into jars. I like to just get a spoon sometimes and get a heap of it when I'm in the kitchen alone.

I am of the opinion that fluff makes a better hot chocolate additive than marshmallows.
Marshmallows take too long to melt and then get stuck to your lip. Also, I don't even want
to know how your tiny little girl brain figured jam got into jars! :lol: :lol:

Well that's easy. I grew up on a farm making jam. I know exactly how that got in the jars. I put it there!

I didn't know when I was little that gravy could come in a jar. To this day I believe that it is a crime against humanity considering how easy it is to make yourself.

If you weren't so darn far away I would come help. That sounds good. I keep screwing up this planning thing. I didn't think about wanting a roast for dinner until about 11 last night so it's still a brick in my fridge and will have to wait until tomorrow. Do muddy buddies count as dinner? No? Well that's mean. Maybe I'll throw together a couple more arepas and another pot of fresh cheese and grill a burger. I just don't feel up to much myself. Today would be a perfect napping day.

Yes, I suppose it is a fair question. It never occurred to me as a child that things weren't somehow natural. We killed our own animals, until I was 3 we had a milk cow and we grew our own vegetables. I didn't know food could come from, wherever it is marshmallows come from. I suppose I'm an odd duck though, as a parent I convinced my preschool aged children that there was such a thing as a Spam animal. I even drew them a picture.

Now I want Spam for supper! And I had to. My oldest daughter went through many food phases. She decided one morning she was a vegetarian, except chickens. Chickens don't have feelings. It was the only way to get one more "meat" into her.
