Tuesday started off with the wind blowing the snow . About 30-40 mile an hour winds can make one inch of snow seem like a blizzard.
Bone chilling cold too. There were highway pile ups in Indiana yesterday because of the snow squalls. That's scary. People who do not need to be out , surely need to stay home where they are safe and warm. I did not leave the house.
So back to the kitchen to cook. Made these small meatloaves, always roast potatoes and carrots along with them. Makes about three meals for us. Make some slaw or a salad. to serve with this.Some times I fix peas or green beans also..
By late afternoon the winds had calmed down. Which allowed people to go to the grocery. We did not have school yesterday. I was thankful to hear that when my daughter called me.
Then sunset came ...oh how pretty it was. The sun shone most all day, but was hard to see thru the snow being blown around. The air was bitter cold, but the sunset made it seems warmer.
I plan on keeping the fireplace going. Maybe just have a sandwich for lunch today.:) Don't want to wear my cooking pans out, you know. LOL Stay warm today and be safe if you go out please. XO
mmmm, thats a great supper and such a beautiful sunset,,,ReplyDelete
Thank you Laurie. I hope you all are staying warm there. Having some good food on a cold day sure helps. Especially if it's something warm. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
I like the idea of mini meatloaves. I've never done that. I cook a lot because Joe and I both have food allergies and you never know what's hidden in those prepared meals. That keeps me warm on cold days too because our kitchen is COLD.ReplyDelete
That's a beautiful sunset!
Kathy, I have to tell you this way to cook meatloaf. My daughter came over with a meatloaf and mashed potatoes. I laughed...she had baked her meat loaf in muffin tins.So it was like individual servings. So clever. I told her I had just make that two little meat loaves myself. I made her take it home with her when she left. I hope you and Joe are feeling better and are warm. It's suppose to warm up to around 40 degrees in the next day or so. Blessings to you, xoxo,SusieDelete
It looks delicious, perfect for a cold day. Glad the winds died down.ReplyDelete
Janet, I was happy about the winds calming. Now they are saying the temps will be up to 40 degrees in a day or so. Wow. Some crazy winter. Hope all of you are doing well and staying warm. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Oh what a great meal on a cold day. Looks so delicious. Now I'm hungry and it's only 9:30. haha.ReplyDelete
Enjoy the day and stay warm. Blessings xo
Celestina, When it's cold...it's so nice to have some warm food. I also made a pot pof chili, to have thru this cold week. The weatherman says now it's to be 40 degrees by Friday. LOL. We are having a crazy winter. Blessings to you, hope you are warm. xoxo,SusieDelete
Oh, when the wind blows it just chills you to the bone. 30 to 40 mile an hour is some pretty hard winds. I can easily see why they closed the schools; the roads must have been terrible. On the other hand, staying in and having that wonderful comfort food was the perfect answer to enjoying a cold winters day :)ReplyDelete
Connie, You are so right...that's how cold it's been here. My fingers hurt once I go outside. Today the wind was low and by Friday the temps will be 40 degrees. Unreal. Our winter is mixed up. Yes, the road are scary slick in places. Meat loaf is one of my favorites and chili too. Stay warm and safe there. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Love the sunsetReplyDelete
Kuni, I was thrilled to see the sun so bright . Today is was only peeping here and there. No wind but cold . Blessings to you, xoxo,SusieDelete
Brrr Susie! Glad you stayed safe and warm inside. We've had some sunshine and also some cold cloudy days. Thankfully I'm staying inside, sitting new a window filled with sunshine and warmth. Great job on cooking.ReplyDelete
Noreen, It was a sup[er cold day and today is better but still cold . Now the weatherman is saying 40 degrees by Friday. Our weather is so mixed up. But I like 40 very much. I'll be ready to eat out any time. LOL. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
You've painted a cozy picture of your snow day! We had a snow night so it was not quite the same. It sure came in cold, though.ReplyDelete
Vee, I was shocked how very bitter the air has been...thankfully we are in for a slight warm up ..then it is back to cold. 66 more days till spring. :) Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Susie! You did a post about cooking! Yay for you! It looks delicious! xo NellieReplyDelete
Oh you stop girl...LOL..I know Nellie, you are probably in shock, but once upon a time I could really cook. But please don't ask my girls about that. LOL. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Susie, the sunset showing through the cold winter snow is so pretty. I know I tell you how beautiful the snow is where you live, but I really mean it. If you saw on one of my last posts, the only glimpse of snow that I see is the frost on me and my neighbor's lawns haha. It was always nice when the schools were closed because of the rain or storms because I was a stay-at-home mom and got to spend time with my kids. :) Thanks for the snow pictures, Susie. They get to me every time. Your meatloaf looks Yummy too.ReplyDelete
Sheri, Some times frost can be so heavy it seems like snow. When my girls would be snowed in from school, most times my work was cancelled also...so we would bake and play scrabble or Spill-N-Spell. We always had fun. I miss those sweet times. Blessings, love you, SusieDelete
Can't decide which is pretiier, your meatloaves w/veggies or that sunset. I love how you love the cold, snowy weather. I just couldn't do it!ReplyDelete
On a cold day...that meatloaf is so good . Hope you are enjoying some good times this winter. Are you settled in at your new home? Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
It is delightful to me to come here and see a portion of the country that I've never seen before...and to feel the cold of the snowy photos...and feel the warmth from your kitchen preparations.ReplyDelete
Just splendid, to me.
Living here in South Georgia, I don't see snow....but I can enjoy the beauty of your area by visiting your blog....and I thank you for that!
Jackie, My big brother lives in Anniston Alabama. He always lets me know the weather down there...and sometimes it sounds so good when we are freezing here. LOL. I am glad you are my blog friend. Hope you are having good weather...we are too today. well it's damp but much warmer . Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Wow, you really had a cold, cold day! We had bitter cold temps last weekend...the wind was so bad and it hurt to be out in it. If I didn't have to walk my dog I wouldn't get out at all! Seems the same is scheduled for this weekend so I need to run some errands today. My ear is killing me and I don't feel "right". I'm so hoping it's just allergies.ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful weekend my friend!
Pat, Those bitter cold days were here for about 4 days....now it's around 40 degrees and the snow is melting...an arctic blast is headed our way and snow maybe on Sunday...crazy weather.LOL. I hope you got something done about your ear. If it's a infection your balance will be off...making you sick to your stomach. I hope you are better. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Hi Susie ... just seen your blog from Dewena's, and thought I'd hop over and say hello.ReplyDelete
I just love the picture of that sunset and snow always looks great in photo's!
Your dinner looks amazingly colourful and tasty!
All the best Jan
I like your blog name. :):) I know that low carb diet...it works , truly works. I try to tell my husband the more color in your meal the healthier. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Stay off the road! That would scare me to death! It is beautiful and I wish for snow, but not the awful results on the roads.ReplyDelete
Bonnie, I drove for over 30 years in every kind of nasty weather....so I do not go out if I can help it. LOL. Blessings to you honey, xoxo,SusieDelete
I've done mini meatloaves before, but never thought about roasting vegetables along with meatloaf. Looks very good. Your photos are really nice, as always. I would definitely stay in on a day like that. When I worked, sometimes it was necessary to get out, but it was always scary driving on icy roads.ReplyDelete
Nonnie, I have just seem a first....my daughter brought over mini meat loaves baked in muffin tins. I laughed and told we had just had meatloaf....But I appreciated her effort. I think those mini loaves sound very good. She said they cook faster too. :) Oh I never go anywhere when the roads are bad...I drove on them for over 30 years when I worked. That was enough for me. LOL> Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
I know I should not want a snow like yours because our work comes to a stop then but it has been so long here since we've had any that I would love to experience it again.ReplyDelete
I've never thought about roasting vegetables along with the meatloaf--great idea!
Dewena, My girls and I used to have the best fun when they had snow days and I would have too or take the day off. I am all about quick and easy meals. So roasting veggies with the meat makes less messes and it's so good. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
What a beautiful winter event!! I never thought about cooking the vegetables with a meat loaf before but I bet I'm going to try that! No bad weather down here on the ranch this week! Our time is drawing to a close. Real life will return soon!ReplyDelete
You take the prettiest pictures!! I am getting to feel like I'm visiting a familiar place when I come over here and I like that! Makes you seem closer....
Linda, I love when you comment. I want you to enjoy my blog. I sure do love yours. My daughter just showed me a new way to make meatloaf...she bakes it in muffin tins. They serving sizes. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
