Song for a Winter's Night

I sit here drafting this and it -1F.  This seems to be the norm lately.

We've been riding a cold spell as of late. As annoying as it is, it does not compare to last Winter - so it's hard to complain.

Today was supposed to be close to a record low, but now that forecast might be revised to be closer to just a plain old 0F.

710's commute doubled (each way) due to bad roads, white-outs and accidents (not his).

The thoughts of warming up are always in the back of my mind, and sometimes food is just the way to do it.

So I went with what I consider winter-time food - the grilled cheese you heard about a week or two ago and chicken tortilla soup.

Filling and cheesy.

Everything was ready when 710 walked in the door.

It's not much of a post, but it wasn't much of a day.

Allegedly we'll get into double digits over the weekend. I'll wait and see.

Song by: Sarah McLachlan

Snow on the ground and a temp of 5 degrees this morning. And I live at the beach! This uncharacterically cold weather is all people can think about right now. Your warm-up menu sounds great.

I haven't had a grilled cheese sandwich i ages; i miss them.
Hot soup and a sandwich sounds just right for a long winter in the midwest.
