Claire, love your descriptions of your experiences in the nature of Seattle area. I always look forward to reading your postings. It is a good thing that you are prudent, because mountains and snow are dicey. Do you ever see people on toboggans up there? When I was growing up, we had a 3 seat, galvanized metal toboggan, with wood slats for feet. To steer, we had a leather strap hinged to the front. It seemed like the heavier the people. the faster the toboggan. We actually have snow in Illinois!!! But it as cold as Alaska. We also had metal saucers, like Clark Griswold from Christmas Vacation, that we would put Crisco on, to go faster.
Varga, I made chili with the same recipe, except for pan browned ground beef and onions instead of chicken, a can of tomato sauce instead of chicken broth, sans the corn and red peppers. Leave the jalapenos, tomatoes, 3 cans of black beans drained, plus the spices. I am looking for a hint of a smokey flavor to add to the mix. I was able to freeze 2 decent sized containers, along with other containers of the chicken taco soup that I made last week.
Working on a beading project, before returning to the organization project of my room upstairs. With the cold weather, I just don't feel like organizing, but more "hunkering" down with the beads and dog. It is amazing that our weather can swing 112 degrees. My body does not adapt well to the extremes, but prefers anything from 45 to 85 degrees, which we get most of the year. April to the end of December, we are usually in those ranges. Jan, Feb, March we see the extreme cold, and August we see extreme heat and humidity.
