Comfort Food

On a day like today it seems you need a little or a lot of comfort food.  I had thawed a sirloin roast a day or so ago and decided to use Pioneer Woman’s recipe for Pot Roast—it was just the ticket for a cold, snowy winter day—delicious and comforting!  We have also been snacking all day on the leftover party food from last night—we had a gathering of friends to celebrate Winter Solstice and there was tons of food left over.  Enough to feed us for several days—if we get snowed in, we surely will not starve!


Michael did some leather working and I took a nap—this cold just won’t go away and it makes me very tired.  After lunch I did summon enough energy for working on my little Lynette Anderson, It’s A Dog’s Life quilt which I am doing in wools.  I now have two blocks completed—that is the shapes are cut and fused to the background ready for hand stitching as we tootle down the road. 

We also spent some time packing and rounding up stuff—we were going to turn the heat on in the motorhome and start loading but it just wasn’t the day for that—it snowed hard most of the day—we would have done nothing but track all kinds of snow into the rig. 

That’s about it for our Sunday before Christmas.  Santa is coming—have you been behaving yourself???

  1. Comfort food and a cheese tree - not too bad for a lady with a cold. Jim is fighting a cold also and can't seem to shake it. I've kept him inside for two days now. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. Of course with my two black eyes I don't really want to go anywhere either.

  2. What a clever idea! I love your cheese tree. Roast beef with carrots and potatoes... yes indeed! Comfort food for sure!

  3. The mashed potatoes and gravy especially appealed to me. :)

  4. Your cheese tray is so cute!! You win!

    I made your cracker recipe yesterday. I used whole wheat flour which worked great. They were fantastic!!! And so easy.

    Then, today I made the Chex mix. The first batch I sent to our son. The second batch was gor us. Yum!!

    Thanks for all these great suggestions.

    Stay warm! Hope you start feeling better soon:)

    Merry Christmas!

  5. Nice! Both the pot roast and the cheese tray. Stay warm, and Merry Christmas to the two of you.

  6. Great photo of the woods and snow from your porch. Even better pic of the roast beef and mashed potatoes dinner!

    Hope you're able to get out of that snowbound home when it's time to go.

  7. You are getting more snow and ours is melted now following an all night drizzle. It should not be too long now and you will have that awesome iPad mini to work and play with.

  8. Betty would be proud, and I'm copying your cheese tray idea for tomorrow night!!!
