February 25, 2016


Concord beat the old record of 60 degrees on February 25th.  It reached 63 degrees today!  It was quite lovely.  I had a light jacket on in the morning because of the breeze – but at lunch I was in my shirt sleeves.  I am so glad that the winter has been kind to us this year.  Last year was extreme.  I don’t mind snow – but I do mind storms every other day.  Right now, I am ready for spring.  I am looking forward to seeing the birds and green.  I actually love temperatures in the 60s … 70 is perfection – but I could handle the 60s.  I do not like the heat.

I am back at Weight Watchers – so of course, I can think of nothing else but food.  Below is a recipe that you may like.  It is a family favorite!  I have posted it before – but it may be new to some of you or remind you that it is time that you make it again.
