Hmmm! Sounds so easy and good, esp for theseVERY cold days now. Everyone stay layered and be careful, not only for yourselves, but also for the animals. Blessings, Carol

Good Morning Carol,
Jean thought with all the cold weather in our area, this would be a nice recipe.

Please be careful if you live in the cold area. It is 14 right now and going lower. Took Pierre out and he did his business and got right back in.

Tomorrow morning the wind chills in our area are predicted to be 20 below zero. Sunny at the moment, but conditions will deteriorate as time goes by. Still looking forward to Spring-LOL ;)! Carol

Hi Carol

It's suppose to go down real low here today. Then up to about 20 tomorrow. Then back down again. They are talking zero or below here at night. Spring can't get her fast enough.
