I said it this morning during the morning show. A cold day calls for some yummy cold weather food. Why are we like this? All day today I've been thinking to myself should I make chili for dinner, my kids would love to have frito pie with it. Or should I make caldo? Some sort of chicken soup? That sounds good too.
Look and listen to me right now....menudo and tamales are acceptable year round! There is no question, there is no argument in my opinion. However, if you are asking an old school momma or tia, they will tell you no, it is only for the colder months or you have to wait for Christmas when everyone gets together to make them.
I have always and will always be a firm believer in 'momma knows best.' We all remember things our parents taught us and instilled in us, some lessons more than others. I will never forget when the weather got cold as it is now, my mother was adamant about me covering up or I would get sick. Thus the cotton balls you see in the photo. I have become my mother. lol
Well things got real pretty quick yesterday when we went from summer to winter in a matter of hours! I mean temps dropped from mid 90's to mid 50's like nothing. Don't get me wrong, I am all about it, I love colder weather!
Today it's all about comfort food! Am I right? The weather gets cold and we love to warm up with soups of any kind. In fact, that sounds fabulous right now! Why is it that we hibernate and turn to food? lol
90 degrees on Saturday, 39 today. This crazy West Texas weather that we know and love and probably the whole reason I'm sick right now. But you know what? I still love it! I have a couple of co workers who give me a hard time when there is rain, snow or sleet because they come straight to me and say, 'are you glad it's your kind of weather?' Like I caused it! lol
Are you a Netflix and chill person in this kind of weather? As of right now, there are some flurries falling in the 4-3-2 with a 20% chance of more this afternoon/evening. There are those who stay home, warm and cozy with family, catch up on recorded shows, drink some hot chocolate with the fireplace going. Then there are those who would get cabin fever so they have to get out and about.
