Remember the rain?

It turned into this!
Absolutely beautiful.

By the time class ended lasted night, the sleet that was coming down before I went in the building had turned to fluffy wet flakes. I decided to stop at the little market closest to the house on the way home so I could pick up what I needed to make some soup and more fudge the next day. This is my 3rd winter here and I still am adapting to the local mind set in regard to snow. When I arrived at the market, there was a hand written sign posted on the door:
Closing early at 8pm because of the weather. I really wanted a good picture of it, but settled for a distant shot from the car so as not to look suspicious! lol

Going to make more fudge today.
This time, I'll use 2c. semi-sweet chips and 1c. butterscotch chips with toffee stirred in.
Then, I'll make just an all chocolate batch.

Made some Taco Soup ... yum!
  1. Brown 1 lb. lean ground beef with chopped onion, 1 pkg. taco seasoning and 1 pkg. ranch dressing mix.
  2. Add 2 large cans diced tomatoes and 1 can Rotel tomatoes.
  3. Drain 1 can black beans, 1 can pinto beans and 1 can corn. Add to soup.
  4. Heat through and serve with grated cheese, sour cream and tortilla chips.

That soups sounds yum!!!! And isn't it amazing how different areas see snow!?! Our friends in the UP get a foot or two at a time - and no one even slows down their activities!

Hi Jill! Glad you are 'learning' about our crazy weather here! Going to try the fudge later today and make some home-made (well almost-I use Chili Magic) Chili. It's cold and it will be really good!! Catch ya later. Julie, just a 'few' miles east of you. ;o)
