Comfort Food in the Cold.

Another cold and boring day here at the stix and brix.  I went outside for a brief moment, and decided that it was too cold at about 26 degrees to do anything productive outside. 

Returning to the easy chair and the laptop computer, I have spent the day web browsing.  Tough life but someone has to keep up on all this stuff. 

By mid afternoon, I went over to Wal Mart, which is only about a mile away, and besides it was almost up to freezing by that time, and bought enough stuff to make Linda Payne's Baked Spaghetti Amour.  I don't follow her recipe verbatim but it is mostly the same.  I add extra tomato sauce and two kinds of cheese.

I used fresh garlic and onions.  That has way more flavor than the powder stuff.  So we ate well tonight.

I also made a sugar free pumpkin pie with sugar free cool whip as the desert.  Using bagged splenda, you are hard pressed to tell the difference from real sugar.  At least I thought it was darned good.

Tonight we used the D Star radio system to connect back up to the Des Moines area and three of us hams spent a good while talking technical stuff and adjusting the repeater out in Western Iowa.

Just like that its after midnight, so time to pack it in!

  1. I agree that below freezing indicates a good "inside day".
