Our weather forecasters have been predicting this huge “snomeggedon” all week. So far, we don’t have the snow levels they’ve been predicting, however, it is supposed to continue to snow for most of the week, which is really unusual for us. More so than not, the sky dumps a ton of snow on us, and a few hours later, the skies are once again blue and most of the snow has already melted. I don’t think this storm is going to be this way though. It is late October, and so far, we have already had 3 really good, cold, snows, and the season is only just starting. I think we are in for a cold, snowy winter. Yesterday, when it started to snow, we did not get much, but it continued to snow all through the day and through the night. So far, we have about 4-6 inches in our neck of the woods, and the roads are pretty bad. The mountains are supposed to get at least about 18 inches, if not more. When I went in to work this morning, my car thermometer read 17* F. When I came home, it read 19*. Work was really, really dead. I work in pools, and NO ONE wanted to come in to swim. But then, I can’t say I really blame them. Even I do not want to swim when the weather is like this. When the weather is like this, I have to say, all I really want to do is just stay inside, where it is nice and warm, and safe. It’s days like this I want the oven on all day.
This was early this morning.
A bit later in the morning.
So, when it is this cold and wintery outside, this is what’s cooking inside. We had a little pre-Thanksgiving supper with some roasted Brussels sprouts and vegetables, stuffing (from a box) and a delicious turkey. Normally, as you know, I much prefer to make my own everything, but we had some boxed stuffing downstairs, so why not, right?! 🙂 It’s OK in a pinch, but … homemade is ALWAYS so much better.
The turkey was so moist and delicious! Believe me, we have a lot of turkey leftover, and then Thanksgiving is just right around the corner, so there will be quite a few turkey recipes coming your way.
