We have shoveled out from that beautiful snowstorm, the tree is up and decorated and company is coming whether we are ready or not.... This morning I left home early under a beautiful blue sky with the cold sun making hoar frost glisten on every twig and clump of weeds. It was 2* ~ crispy and crunchy! A few errands to run, then back home I found the mantel looking especially pretty on this bright day. Every year I decorate it differently and I rather like the lace, candles and poinsettias. The candle holders are etched red flash antiques from my husband's Aunt Martha.... a treasure.
And, of course, any pie will do anytime......... I made a chicken pot pie for dinner last night. It was especially delicious! I was short of time so picked up a hot ready-cooked chicken from the grocery, cooked a pot full of veggies slightly, made a white sauce, topped it all with a freshly blended pie crust, popped it in the oven while I made
a salad and..... voila! Perfect winter supper!
