To prepare for the week, I did my weekly grocery shopping yesterday. The parking lot was so full that I had to wait until someone left to get a spot. That's crazy! On the list this week were comfort foods. No sense sitting indoors with a blizzard outside without some good old fashioned comfort food. On the menu this week will be chicken pot pie, made with homemade mashed potatoes and some broccoli on the side. Meatloaf is on the menu as well-I have Grandma's recipe that I enhanced a bit and it's really good. I even tried to get some tomato soup but they were sold out! Did they not know a blizzard was coming! It was the only type that was sold out. I am not much of a soup person and typically make my own but I do have a thing for tomato soup on occasion. Anyway, comfort foods are in the house.
So our focus for the next few days will be keeping warm and watching the snow fall. In addition to the snow, they expect winds of 50 mph tomorrow. Dear Son will be keeping warm in his NFL Bears Snuggie that I got him for Christmas. Dad likes it so much, he told me to pack it in Dear Son's suitcase over the weekend and told me it might not be coming back, lol.
