Snowy Day Food

It snowed all day yesterday.  Yes, I know it's the middle of April!  It was snowing when I woke up in the morning and still snowing when I went to bed.  When I got up this morning, it was still snowing!  It has stopped now but it's still a grey cold kind of day.

We didn't leave the house yesterday.  Lloyd has been sick for a few days and doesn't have much of an appetite so I decided to make a pot of chicken noodle soup for dinner.  I went on Pinterest and found a slow cooker version of the soup so put it on early in the day and the house smelled like soup cooking all day - lovely.  It was a super easy recipe and super good, so I'll be sure to make it again.


It's a lovely thick soup.  I made it in my 4 L inset of my slow cooker and there's plenty left for the two of us to have for dinner tonight and lunch tomorrow.  Or I could freeze some of it for later.

To go with it to finish off the meal, I went to Pinterest again and found a biscuit recipe which was a delicious accompanient to the soup, served warm with butter melting on them.  (I know my British friends call cookies biscuits, but this is probably what they refer to as scones.)



We ventured out today for an ice cream treat and are now snug and warm in our house once again.  Hopefully spring will be here to stay in a few days.

Thankfully no snow here! We were nice and warm today and it felt really great to be outside. Hope that snow goes away for you soon!

SNOW! SNOW! GO away. Come again NEXT winter. Soup is good for what ails you. Hope your husband is feeling better soon. Those scones look GREAT. Take care.

Sounds like a wonderful way to snuggle in and get to feeling better. I hope Lloyd feels much improved after your tasty soup and biscuits. And with all the snow, you still ventured out for ice cream! :)

I would trade you our wind, rain and tornadoes for your snow. 122 tornadoes ripped across tornado alley from Oklahoma to Iowa over the weekend. Tis not my favorite season. That soup would have been delicious for a rainy day as well as a snowy day. Yum!

That soup looks delicious as do the biscuits. Crock pot soups are my favourite!
Sending continuing get well wishes to Lloyd!

The snow is melting,thank goodness.
Wasn't it a nasty shock to see it falling? I had hoped we were done with such goings on...
