But rarely do I have the forethought and the ingredients for everything on hand!
For New Year's Eve, I did!
Big Idaho potatoes (just like on that giant potato truck!!!)
A wonderful pot of chili (RECIPES HERE!!!!)
I did this before but it's worth talking about again, a total fun TEX MEX meal depending on which chili recipe you pick!
We did the standard tomato/chili powder + other good stuff and chock full of beef variety... but all work, even chicken chili/white chili!
Bake the potatoes but don't overbake them. Be kind.
When chili and potatoes are ready, get out shredded sharp cheddar cheese, sour cream, salt and pepper and layer...

I like to cut my potato up a little first. Why waste time once it's ready??? :)
No, there is nothing redeeming about this meal! Potato... YUM!
Sharp cheddar cheese??? YUM!!!
And sour cream dollops? Well... mountains, actually!!!
So that was our fun "Grab when you're ready" New Year's Eve meal.... and it made a whole lot of people happy!
And here's a little glimpse of winter on the farm...
Cat blankets on the old couch..... Cocoa Mocha and Honey Bunny White Socks.
Morgan's 3 year old birthday party. She wanted a "green" party... Easy peasy! With a Peppa Pig cake...
I wish they were always that easy to please, don't you????
And here in Western New York, home of the Deep Freeze so many of us are enjoying...
Softened by THESE!!!!
The KITTENS!!! The ones Farmer Dave and Farmer Seth rescued from under mountains of wood... Almost ready for homes! Hello, kittens!!!
And that's it from the frozen forests of Western New York where quiet tiptoeing writing in the middle of the night is like the BEST writing time ever...
For crazy northerners like me!
