I don't know about you, but for me....during the winter I have the characteristics of a bear.
My life is so much slower...more relaxing. Cozy fires do that to me.
Pretty cold this morning....around 17 when I went out to the barn. No wind, so it was ok.
I've been feeding a little more hay lately.
Never make it the same way twice. Today's ingredients...onions, 1 carrot, 1 bag of our sauce, a big can of crushed tomatoes, salt, pepper, pepper flakes, chili powder, cumin (let that blend for awhile) added kidney beans, canalini, green beans and corn, then heated it up. (I also add some weird things like a shot of cider vinegar and a little brown sugar). Had a quiet afternoon....by 4 I wanted to curl up under a blanket before going out to the barn.
Went out around 5:15 and it wasn't too bad.
It should get warmer tomorrow. Need some sunshine....
Tucked in the girls...lately, they go in their stalls when Gary brings out the warm water for their buckets. By the time I feed the grain, they have started on their hay (which I set up in the morning).
The salad for tonight....romaine, onion, roasted red peppers, olives and fresh romano cheese.
Gary brought home some bread made by our friend Chet (also known as the "Breadman.") He lives across the street from Jenny and saw Gary shoveling the driveway...brought over a couple loaves. He has a blog called "Breadtime Stories" and has made thousands of loaves over the years. He gives them away...likes to pay it forward and people love him.
So much for today...not a lot of excitement.
