Yesterday I made my big pot of beans, speckled butter and black bean combo. The tomato broth turned a rich mahogany color when they were finished cooking. I neglected to take a photo though.
Overnight we got another seven and one half inches of snow. Just about everything shuts down in town when it snows here. This time the snow hasn't melted off of our driveway so we're not going anywhere. Our driveway is too steep and long to shovel. Besides we sold our snow shovel in Florida of all places. A gentleman from up north bought it. He's probably using it this year. Luckily we have stocked up on plenty of food and fuel.
Lots of critters are hungry out there. The opossum came back last night looking for cat food in the outdoor bowl. He even looked inside the french door window.
