Good morning! I hope this finds you happy, healthy, and ready to start a new week. I will be, as soon as I get up and pour myself one more cup. I am sticking with the Dunkin Original today, with probably more than necessary amounts of cream. And did I ever tell you that after I pour in the cream, I heat it up in the microwave for thirty seconds? I have to have my coffee hot.
Here in Pennsylvania, we are seeing some heavy amounts of snow. I think some of you will see much, much more! Stay safe, warm, and cozy while it comes down outside. Yesterday, Madison and I spent the afternoon cooking! We prepared four new-to-us dishes from my Cooking with the Saints cookbook. Our January saintly meal was a Mediterranean meal, in honor of St. Anthony the Abbot, and was actually delicious! I honestly didn't know what to expect, mainly because I rarely leave my comfort zone, although I cook a great deal. The dishes in this meal were made with many familiar ingredients but used differently and with different spices. In the end, we all agreed it was delicious! While preparing the meal was time-consuming, it was worth it! We decided the last Sunday of each month will be the date of our Saintly Meal. And, the leftovers went into containers for work lunches today!
