It is cold and rainy. And it has been for several days. At first I thought today was going to be spent dealing with an electrical crisis at our house - we came home last night to a house that had electricity in only half of it. A little while later, it came back on though, much to my relief, although I still am guessing there is faulty wiring here somewhere, and perhaps water coming into contact with said faulty wiring....
In any case, I CAN cook today after all! So tonight's supper is mostly warming foods:
Tomato Soup with black beans and rice
Baked Potatoes / Baked Sweet Potatoes
Cucumber slices with dip of some sort (the one not warming food, we have cucumbers here to use up, and since cucumbers seem to have gone up in price lately, we are trying EXTRA hard not to waste any!)
Cauliflower something or other - I have a head of cauliflower to use up! - I think I will chop it fine in the food processor and mix with a few things and make some sort of cauliflower casserole. IF it's good, I'll report back!
