I'm giving up all talk of spring ... because we have a couple more months of winter yet and all that talk of spring is just depressing.  About as depressing as our gray and cloudy skies we have today ... about as depressing as looking out my window at the HUGE snowflakes falling ... about as depressing as looking at my flower beds that are still under a foot of snow.  BUT... these days will pass and spring will show it's beautiful face soon enough.  Then I'll be complaining about raking up dog poop,  having to stain the deck, washing my house windows, getting the dead grass and last years leaves off the lawn, walking the muddy trail to the wood shed, feeling guilty if I use my clothes dryer instead of hanging the laundry out on the clothes line, cleaning up all the mess under the bird feeders. Spring is messy.  Let it Snow Let it Snow Let it Snow!

I made a quick pan of comfort food last night for supper.  I think this has to be one of my favorite little toss together meals. I call it, "Chix & Veggies".  Sometimes I eat it just as is in a big ol' soup bowl; or will have it over rice or mashed potatoes.  Last night we had it over a big spoonful of mashed potatoes. It's a very pretty medley of veggies ~ they say you eat with your eyes before your stomach. 

Chix & Veggies

1 Tblsp. olive oil
2 chicken breast cut into one inch pieces
3 Tblsp. flour
1 tsp. curry powder
1/4 tsp. season salt
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. dehydrated or freshly minced chives
2 carrots cut in strips
2 ribs of celery chopped
1 large red onion chopped in big pieces
1 small cluster of broccoli
1 med. potato peeled and cut into one inch cubes
 2 cups of hot water

In a large skillet over medium heat add the olive oil.  Next add the cut up chicken breast and cook for several minutes turning to lightly brown the pieces.  Then add the flour and seasonings.  Cook an additional 5 minutes, stirring often.  Add the vegetables and water.  Cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until all the vegetables are fork tender.  Bon Appétit! 

Until next time...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.


  1. Great minds do think alike! My sentiments exactly about winter and spring. Your Chicken and vegetables looks very tasty! We cook alike too!

  2. Looks like good eats at the sisters houses....hmmm....where to visit first>>>or>>>

    we have the same white stuff on this side of the river

    Blessings Sisters...

  3. Yum Melody... Your Chix and Veggies sound wonderful. My hubby makes a stir fry which is similar --and we put it over rice.

    I can certainly understand how you all get tired of snow because of where you live. We just don't get much snow here --so I become one of those southern 'nutcases' when we get a tiny bit of snow... Sorry about that!!! I wish you could box some up and send it to me!!!! ha

    But you are right.. This is the season we get to stay inside more and get inside things done. When spring gets here, there will be TONS of outside work!!!! SO---let's all love winter for now.

    We had tons of rain and floods today. I'll blog about it in the morning --with some pictures.
