Day Two of cold, rainy weather and you'll find me bundled up out in the garage, thankful the internet is finally working (after several days of inaction), so I can get some work done. It's time for those dreaded expense reports once again and I always have to look up some info online in order to finish them.
It really isn't too bad out here in the garage, especially since I dried a load of laundry in the dryer, which generated some heat while it was going. But that load finished a while ago so I'm still wearing a sweat jacket under a light-weight winter coat and have a fleece blanket draped over my jean-clad legs.
We also broke down and turned on the wall heater in the casita. Or should I say Ivan got tired of my incessant whining and lit it up?
[Although even he's layered up in an effort to ward off the cold while he studies.]
It's not even that it is that cold (by Michigan standards, anyway). It did get down in the 40s overnight, but was 55 degrees by mid-morning (and 60 degrees inside the casita) but it's the damp kind of cold that seems to penetrate your very bones.
Okay, enough about our damp, chilly days. Let's talk about food!
I'm in a food rut. I haven't been motivated to do much in the kitchen since our return from the states, so we've gotten by on a lot of homemade bread (made by Ivan, not me) and what I'd call pick-me-up meals. Egg salad on bread, open-faced broiled sandwiches, peanut butter and banana sandwiches... Pizza is on the menu for tonight -- which, if you think about it, is basically a ginormous open-faced sandwich of sorts.
I should go look at my Pinterest boards for inspiration, but you can bet that by the time I finish this post (or before) the internet will go down again. Plus, a lot of what I pinned I can't really make here. I pinned them to try while we're in the U.S. where I can get the ingredients.
So tell me, what's been your favorite meal lately? You get bonus points if it's suited for cold, rainy weather!
