It’s time for comfort food. What could be more of an example of comfort food then Macaroni and Cheese. I found a recipe for “Stovetop Macaroni and Cheese”. It was fast and easy to make by just combining flour and butter and then a little milk to make a rue and adding the shredded cheese and cooked elbow macaroni and stirring. Add little Smoked Paprika over the top. Yum. Even better is to add some chopped up cooked bacon to the mix.
I love poached eggs and when you get them cooked just right, they are really a comfort food. I got some farm fresh Jumbo Eggs and put a little salt and a splash of Vinegar in the boiling water. Then when I gently dropped the eggs in, I made a swirl in the water with a spoon and it makes the eggs stay together.
Soup made in the Instant Pot is also a comfort food this time of year. I tried Split Pea with Ham and it was hearty and filling and just right for a nice lunch. I put a ton of soup recipes on my Instant Pot board on my Pinterest.
Yesterday I completely organized my desk and my files. My stapler was empty of staples and had been for months. Lo and behold I found a box of staples that I didn’t even know I had. Plus I found recipes that I forgot that I saved and I sorted out my mail basket. I even found some seasoning recipes like for Chili, Tacos and Italian Seasoning.
Now to organize my pantry. Some of it is organized. I just love my Pioneer Woman jars. They are just the right size and work really nice for holding Walnuts, California Mix, Sunflower Seeds and Pumpkin Seeds. Plus the little Lazy Susan that turns works nice for holding the jars. Then the big jar for holding flour works really nice. All from Walmart and works for my budget.
I love the above OXO container for the fridge. I got it a couple of years ago when I got a gift certificate from Kohls. I love salads and this container keeps the greens really fresh for much longer then if I didn’t use it.
I love the above container that would be cute to hold Jelly Beans. Jelly Belly are the best Jelly Beans in my opinion. I saw the container on Amazon.
King Arthur Flour has a mix to make Maple Oat Bread. What a nice Spring recipe. The mix is on their website.
This is what Vermont looks like right now. Last night it was so windy that I could hardly believe it. It’s chilly one day, in the 30’s the next and then the day after that snowing or freezing rain.
And over and out from Vermont on the last week of February.
