The view from my neck of the woods…
We’re battling our second blizzard of the week today — that means our third day of no school, our fourth day of shoveling and the fifth day of constant news coverage on the Snowpocalypse of 2013.
I mean it’s all good fun the first time — the sledding and fort-building, the snowmen and hot chocolate. But the second blizzard of the week is a tad depressing. We feel trapped. Homebound. Like poster children for Seasonal Affective Disorder.
Where is the sunshine?
What today really calls for is a bowl of warm, savory chili. Chili that’s been simmering in my crock pot all afternoon. This is my mama’s recipe. It’s pretty neutral — not too smoky, not too spicy, not too chili powder-y. You can dress it up and make it however you like it. But it is deeeeeeeee-licious.
Happy snow day. Again.
