Dang if the cold didn't creep in again but I have no room to complain. Our weather has been totally mild compared to the rest of the US of A. Instead of complaining about this gloomy day I decided to cook us up a pot of my best cold weather stew.....Boil one organic chicken until it falls off the bone. Reserve chicken stock and boil down to use later. Saute 1 chopped green pepper and one chopped onion. Add Italian sausages diced and cook until brown. Now add one big can of tomatoes, jar of hot salsa, half of a bottle or so of red wine, some of your chicken stock....throw in some garlic powder and OLD BAY seasoning, salt and pepper...Cook for around an hour. Keep tasting...keep seasoning until it is just right. Now heat up a loaf of nice crusty bread and dig in ....we plan to for sure. Weather turns bright and sunny this weekend and hopefully Spring will be back full swing. Dogwoods are peeking out and we can't wait for everything to pop....see you soon at the Cove. m.

Like Gary says....I shouldn't experiment with guests. So, today I tried a little ditty just for him. Another one of those" easy as pie" treats that was sooooooo easy. All I did was scramble eggs with chives and then added just a dollop or so of ricotta cheese at the end. The flavors were perfect together and on top of Annie's Toast....yuuuuum.... just the best yet. Annie is a baker around here that I really believe bakes the best bread. I think I have mentioned this before. Hope you get a chance to try it when you make it to these parts for a visit....see you soon. m
