Chili wound up being today's batch cooking project. It took me all of 15 minutes to cook and then into the crock pot. OH, how I LOVE my 'Thriving' life! Freeze dried onions, green chili peppers and celery. No muss, no fuss and best of all no onion tears. Double batch = Dinner tonight and several other meals of chili and nachos, ready to pop in the freezer for another day.
I don't know about you all but I am OVER Winter!
The ice storm we had in mid-February had us landlocked for 8 days (frozen driveway.) Thank goodness Ken had pulled a vehicle down to the neighbors so I could get back and forth to work. Hey, just one more thing to 'Prepare' for!
Now I am anxiously awaiting Spring and planning our garden. I think I am going to try and play around with some Hay Bale/Straw Gardening and have been doing a lot of research on that. I will post more on my findings.
