I love snow. And I love winter, especially if there is lots of snow. That makes this my lucky winter- lots of snow and lots and lots of cold! I am ready. I have stocked up on the toe warmers and hand warmers, the fleece hats and gloves, scarves and furry boots. And in the grocery store last week I stocked my pantry with supplies for warming, nourishing winter foods. The usual beef stews and vegetable soups are great, but what I crave is the salty garlic and ginger of Asian food. I stir fry lo mein noodles and toss them with whatever vegetables I have in the fridge, usually broccoli and peppers and some winter greens. It is so delicious and even a little healthy, pasta and all. Once I have my bowl of noodles, I am happy to snuggle up on the couch and enjoy the view!
If you are not up to all that cooking, just make yourself a hot toddy, or some coffee spiked with kahlua and capped with whipped cream. Then stay warm and dream about spring.
Happy Winter, Joy
