Steve is leaving this Tuesday for Florida and I’m trying to use up the leftovers in the refrigerator. There are a few things to choose from and Steve picked the pork chops, rice and gravy . I made some sweet potatoes fries to go with it. He brought his boat down from the ranch and stated setting it up for the journey to Lake Placid. Tomorrow is a busy day and hopefully he will get everything done a get an early start on Tuesday,

Sloppy Joes

I can’t believe I’m making Sloppy Joes. As I was walking down the grocery store aisle looking for ideas for dinner I saw a packet of McCormick Sloppy Joes Seasoning Mix. I said to myself “this is something Steve would like” . Forget scallops, chicken piccata or pomegranate pork chops… he likes “simple food”. So I also bought some Ore-Ida frozen french fries and voilà… dinner is served!

I made a special trip into town so I could get the fix-ins to make fried pork chops, a typical southern meal. The best part of this meal is the brown gravy smothered all over the pork chops and rice. And if I may say so myself I make great gravy!!!!

Elk Chili again

Steve and I are both so used to being in warm weather that we are almost nonfunctional in this cold weather. We had to get up and out this morning to go to Grand Junction to pick up the boat. It was 27° and still lots of snow on the ground. I usually never go outside unless the weather is good…. Curled up on the couch in front of a cozy fire is pretty inviting. Steve is out of here and headed to Florida as soon as possible. I stay around for a while and enjoy some quiet time….

For dinner we heated up the elk chili again….

Elk Chili

Well it finally happened… we woke up to the first snow of winter. It was 50° at 6am and by 7am it was 32° and snowing like crazy. We had about 6 inches by 10am. It’s a wet snow and should be gone in a couple of days. Hopefully the passes will be clear when Steve leaves for Florida by  the end of the week.

What better way to officially start the winter than a big pot of Elk Chili. I made my world-famous, first place, blue ribbon chili. It’s a family favorite.
