When I was a young girl, I loved to cook and bake.
When the hubs and I were dating, newly married and
when the boys came along, I spent many joyful days in the kitchen.
Even better were the evenings at the dinner table sharing a meal
and hearing everyone's stories from their day.
At some point, I got so busy, the boys were even busier.
The hubs was working 12 hour days at the business we started together.
I worked along side him while the boys were in school,
and became the "rock star/hard core" mom after school hours.
Cooking took a back seat and more then that,
I just didn't enjoy it.
My rekindled love, cooking!! Let me share what I have been making.
I made a super easy meat loaf, one of my favorite comfort foods.
The meat loaf is huge, so the only thing I make with it is mashed potatoes,
and lot's of them.
I made chicken stew in the crock pot on December 7th,
it was delicious!!
My favorite slow cooker meals are those where
the entire meal is in the crock pot.
On December 19th I made homemade chicken noodle soup,
in the crock pot...
served with a big chunk of bread,
this was my favorite!
So how about all of you guys...
If your bunkered down with cold weather,
do you find yourself cooking more.
Around my house, it isn't fancy stuff, just good ole' comfort food!
